Tandem Diabetes Care ®, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a medical device company and manufacturer of the only touchscreen insulin pumps available in the United States, today announced the launch of the t:connect ® HCP Portal. The portal is an extension of the company's Mac- and PC-compatible, cloud-based t:connect Diabetes Management Application, rated #1 by insulin pump users in independent patient surveys. 1 The original t:connect Application was designed with significant input from patients, placing the ability to monitor diabetes goals between clinic visits within their control. The simple, accessible reporting empowers and encourages patients to take an active role in their care. As a result, a significant number of Tandem pump users upload and view their data in the t:connect Application. 2 More than half of Tandem pump users have logged into the t:connect Application in the past 90 days and upload three times per month on average. The t:connect HCP Portal was developed based on information and feedback collected from hundreds of physicians, nurses, diabetes educators and office staff across the United States to streamline their use of the original t:connect Application and improve office efficiency. Healthcare providers can now upload data from a Tandem pump and blood glucose meter simultaneously, find patients quickly by either first or last name, set patient-specific ranges to quickly identify data that falls outside of goals, and more easily view, save and print reports. The t:connect Application is also cloud based, allowing access to previously uploaded patient data from any internet-connected computer in the U.S. If you are a healthcare provider and would like to learn more about the t:connect HCP Portal, please talk to your local Tandem Representative or contact Customer Technical Support at (877) 801-6901.
