Infopia America’s SmartDiabetes product line has launched in 284 Walgreens drug stores in central and northeast Florida. The stores in this region will be the first in the national drug store chain to promote the SmartDiabetes product line, which coordinates diabetes management between the patient, physician, and pharmacist.

The product line features a blood glucose monitor and a blood pressure monitor, both of which are enabled to transmit results to a HIPAA compliant server for provider and caregiver review. The server, which is branded the Test n’ Share Network, is powered by the Eocene System, allowing patients to manage their personal health records and electronic log books as well as share them in real-time with their healthcare teams.

The SmartDiabetes Xpres Blood Glucose Monitor is available in a complete all-in-one diabetes testing kit, including 5 Xpres Test Strips. Additional SmartDiabetes products include: 50 Ct. Xpres Test Strips, PressurePlus Blood Pressure Monitor, Vantage Lancing Device, and Vantage 100 Ct. Lancets. Data transmission products are also available at Walgreens.

“At Infopia America, our mission is to improve testing compliance and enhance patient care through increased communication using result-sharing technology,” said Bryan Sowards, CEO of Infopia America. “We believe the new affordable SmartDiabetes product line will allow persons with diabetes a way to proactively manage their condition with their healthcare team for better outcomes.”

Walgreens has trained its pharmacists and store managers and will be showcasing the line next to the pharmacy.

“We are looking forward to enhancing the lives of our customers with diabetes by offering them the SmartDiabetes solution,” said Marlin Hutchens, regional vice president for Walgreens Stores. “We are extremely excited about the impact the SmartDiabetes program will have in creating a stronger consultative relationship between our pharmacists, customers, and their healthcare team. The SmartDiabetes program takes patient care to the next level, and we strongly believe everyone benefits from that.”
