Ypsomed Assist1: Dexcom G6 CGM integration into Ypsomed App
Dexcom Video Statement - Simon Michel
We have recently entered a partnership with Dexcom, one of the world's leading providers of Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) systems. The Dexcom G6 CGM system will be integrated in our Ypsomed Diabetescare system. CGM data can then be sent to the Ypsomed App. This way, you will have all relevant therapy data in one place: on your smartphone. There are many more benefits and our CEO, Simon Michel, talks about them in this video.
Ypsomed Assist1: all relevant therapy data at a glance
By integrating the Dexcom G6 into our Ypsomed therapy management solution, we will make it possible for you to benefit from the advantages of a CGM as well as our intuitive YpsoPump insulin pump system at the same time. Every five minutes, the Dexcom G6 sensor sends your glucose value to the Ypsomed App and displays it in the familiar CGM curve. This way, you will have all relevant therapy data in your Ypsomed App at a glance, from glucose values to delivered bolus and basal insulin. To check your latest values, you will therefore only have to take a look at your smartphone, which makes it very discreet.
Simply update your Ypsomed App, no need to replace your current YpsoPump!
Sharing CGM data with your physician
If you are already familiar with the Dexcom system, you will realize that the Ypsomed App will cover all the functions you're used to, as well as working in a very similar way to the Dexcom G6 app. The Ypsomed App with integrated CGM sensors will also alert you when your values are too high or too low compared to your target range. As with the YpsoPump data, you will be able to send the CGM data wirelessly to the Ypsomed Cloud and share them with your physician or caregiver. At the same time, the Ypsomed App will also communicate with the Dexcom cloud for family members or caregivers using the Dexcom Follow app.
Simply update your Ypsomed App
You will be able to benefit from the Dexcom G6 without having to replace your current YpsoPump. The only thing you will have to do is to conveniently download or update your Ypsomed App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Necessary CGM system settings and, if needed, even sensor calibration will be possible directly in your Ypsomed App.
The product integration is planned to be available in the first half of 2021.
Receive alerts from the Ypsomed App when your glucose levels are too high or too low.
Discreetly access and review all your relevant therapy data in one place: on your smartphone.
Review your glucose trend and insulin data at a glance in combination with the YpsoPump.
Share all your data with your physician or caregivers via the Ypsomed Cloud.
Share your CGM data with followers via the Dexcom Follow app.
Automated insulin delivery
The Dexcom G6 GCM integration is an important first step in our Ypsomed Loop Program. With Ypsomed Loop1, you will eventually be able to fully control your YpsoPump via your smartphone. In detail, this means that you will be able to deliver boluses and change the settings of your YpsoPump via your app. We will also work towards the option of an algorithm-supported automated insulin delivery, giving you the opportunity to “loop”. Thanks to our smartphone-based approach, you will benefit from regular feature updates. With the Ypsomed Loop Program, your life will take the main stage as your diabetes therapy will become a matter of ease.
