Digital-healthcare provider Accumbo initiates ‘Diabetesdoktorn’ with Brighter’s diabetes service Actiste®
Stockholm, Sweden – Brighter AB (publ.) (NASDAQ First North: BRIG), a leading digital-healthcare company, is pleased to announce that the Swedish digital-healthcare provider Accumbo is launching a pilot project in Sweden with Brighter’s Actiste® Diabetes Management as a Service. The project will integrate Actiste into the forthcoming Diabetesdoktorn service ('The Diabetes Doctor'), which is an extension of Accumbo's current offering, Blodtrycksdoktorn ('The Blood Pressure Doctor').
"The collaboration between Accumbo and our service Actiste® means that we can potentially address some 150,000 care recipients in the Swedish market, while it also contributes to accelerating Brighter's global expansion," says Henrik Norström, CEO of Brighter. "We welcome increased cooperation between public and private healthcare."
"Existing healthcare infrastructure is increasingly strained in managing the growing volumes of patients with diabetes, especially those with type 2 diabetes. Actiste® enables improved and completely new possibilities for increasing patient adherence to treatment recommendations, and driving the positive behavioural change that is so crucial in preventing health complications," says Norström.
Through 'The Diabetes Doctor' care service, Brighter and Accumbo will facilitate closer access to medical expertise – such as physicians, nurses, dietitians and health scientists, as well as referrals for sampling – for Accumbo's customers. If a customer wants to subscribe to the Actiste service, this can be done through Accumbo's mobile application.
"A global shortage of physicians, greater longevity, and the ever-growing number of chronic diseases together require a change in our healthcare system towards more proactive care and the increased use of modern digital technologies," says Associate Professor Martin Carlsson, Founder and Medical Director at Accumbo.
"As with our care service Blodtrycksdoktorn, through Diabetesdoktorn we will offer patients with diabetes a healthcare solution fit for the future, with increased patient influence and participation. Actiste® fits perfectly into this healthcare concept. Accumbo sees many synergies and will continue to break new ground for the best patient benefit in collaboration with Brighter," says Carlsson.
