Pr. Pierre-Yves Benhamou: The outcomes observed in 1,000 patients using Diabeloop DBLG1 are, indeed, very good and encouraging

PARIS, 28-Sep-2021 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ —

Real-life data confirm clinical and pre-launch data: TIR significantly improved

Today, Diabeloop presents data¹ from a 1,000 patients equipped with DBLG1 System with Accu-Chek Insight insulin pump in Germany. One of the main insights unveiled is an overall Time in optimal glucose Range (70-180 mg/dL) of 73.4% for the whole cohort of patients.

When looking specifically at data² from patients whose HbA1c was available at initiation, it can be observed that Time In Range improved 17.1 percentage points. This result is consistent with results which have been previously published pre-launch³ showing an increase in Time In Range of 16.7 percentage points.

Hypoglycemia reduction a huge factor for an improved quality of life

Data also showed a significant reduction of time spent in hypoglycemia with Time below 70 mg/dL at 1% while time below 54 mg/dL was 0.2%. This outcome surpasses the targets of the 2019 International Consensus.

Feedback of people with diabetes and their caregivers have shown that reducing hypoglycemia is very important. In addition to the life-threatening risks associated with hypoglycemia, discomfort and a decreased quality of life weighs heavily on people experiencing it regularly.

Pre-launch patients
“It (diabetes) had a big impact on my professional life (…) because of my hypoglycemia.”
“I have almost eliminated lows (…), especially at night, which is important!”

Pr. Pierre-Yves Benhamou commented: “The 2019 International Consensus on Time in Range aimed at achieving >70% in range 70-180 mg/dL, <4% below 70 mg/dL and <1% below 54 mg/dL in the majority of people with type 1 diabetes. This means over 16 hours in target range and less than 1 hour below range. The outcomes observed in 1,000 patients using DBLG1 are, indeed, very good and encouraging.”

Patient satisfaction is high

In the 5 countries where DBLG1 System is currently available, feedback from equipped patients has been very positive about its impact on TIR and hypoglycemia, in addition to the system’s ease of use and enhancement of quality of life.

Public social media posts:
“87% TIR, no hypos”
“The result (related to sport): quite conservative but great. No hypo.”
“Very intuitive, little information needed to provide at initiation.”
“I am absolutely delighted. Sometimes I even forget that I have diabetes.
I let it (DBLG1) do the math and success shows.”

Erik Huneker, founder and co-CEO of Diabeloop, who will be presenting the data at EASD4 declared: “Looking at the great results and listening to patient feedback on real-life experiences with our system has been a great reward for our work, and encourages us to make the system even better going forward. We will be able to bring DBGL1 quickly to many more patients in Europe while we keep working on bringing more choices, more interoperability, and more solutions to people with diabetes”.

About DBLG1
DBLG1 is a self-learning algorithm that automates and personalizes the treatment of Type 1 diabetes. The therapeutic artificial intelligence contributes to reducing the heavy mental burden associated with this chronic condition. Hosted on a dedicated handset, it is connected to a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and an insulin pump. It analyzes the data in real time, and decides whether to maintain current settings, adjust or stop basal insulin delivery to avoid a predicted low/high or deliver a bolus to correct a high.

YourLoops, Diabeloop’s data visualization platform allows patients to access data generated by DBLG1 and share them with his/hers healthcare team.

IBM Watson Market Study: IBM Watson services have been positively disrupting and reforming operations in the healthcare industry

DUBLIN 2, Ireland, 10-Oct-2018 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — IBM Watson Services continue to get significant traction from end-users, with over 72% respondents in Europe affirmative on using IBM Watson language services, according to a Fact.MR survey. The survey is part of the comprehensive research study on IBM Watson services market which tracks the adoption of this platform across key sectors. The Fact.MR survey also reveals that use of IBM Watson vision services attracted the minimum interest, with only 48% of respondents in Europe affirmative about using it.

Fact.MR’s IBM Watson services market survey gathered data from over 500 respondents in 10 European countriesThese respondents represented large-scale, SMEs, and micro organizations, with a collective IT spending budget of over US$ 50 billion. The findings of the survey were in sync with the overall expectations and use of IBM Watson services, which are highly reliant on revenue generated from language services.

Growing Realization that Cognitive Technologies Can Empower Decision-Making 

The survey indicates that mitigating the gaps that exist in IT vendors’ execution from data collection to action remains the key concern of organizations. There is an increasing realization among IT vendors that cognitive technologies can empower decision-makers to make sense of colossal structured and unstructured data. The survey offers encouraging insights on the growing use of advanced analytics and cognitive computing in today’s data-driven economy, as over half of the respondents in the survey agreed to using insights- and speech-services of IBM Watson.

“Today, the requirements of organizations are multi-pronged – from gaining a holistic customer view to agile data-to-execution operations, organizations need to invest in cognitive computing and advanced technologies to stay competitive,” says Shambhu Nath Jha, Senior Consultant at Fact.MR and co-author of the study.

“IBM Watson services have been positively disrupting and reforming operations across sectors, especially healthcare. From screening patient’s structured and unstructured data to regulatory requirements and medications, IBM Watson services are witnessing extensive adoption in the healthcare sector,” added Mr. Jha. The growing adoption of IBM Watson services in healthcare is further substantiated by Fact.MR’s findings that the sector currently accounts for nearly 21% revenue share, representing a market value worth US$ 318 Mn.

Improved Business Agility and Seamless Customer Service Identified as Key Advantages 

The Fact.MR survey further reveals that improvement in business agility is the most prominent motivation driving investment in IBM Watson services. Nearly 84% of respondents currently using IBM Watson services said that there was a marked improvement in business agility since the introduction of platform in their organization. An additional 82% said IBM Watson services helped their organizations in improving and transforming customer service.

“Customer service has often remained a key concern for organizations; despite the proliferation of advanced technologies and pervasiveness of smartphones, nearly 50% of customer support calls remain unresolved,” says Shambu Nath Jha. “The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) can mitigate this challenge, and offer seamless support for Tier 1 queries. The system can also effectively gauge the queries that require human intervention, and escalate those queries to a customer support executive if necessary,” adds Mr. Jha.

Effective decision-making, handling colossal structured and unstructured data, and sales assistance are among the other key advantages of using IBM Watson services, according to the Fact.MR survey. “Effective decision-making entails a deep understanding of the unique needs and requirements of customers. Today, businesses are hard-pressed to understand the unique characteristics of their customers, and effectively map their existing and upcoming products to meet the overt and covert needs. IBM Watson can provide sophisticated recommendations that can facilitate effective decision-making,” Mr. Jha added.

Fact.MR’s report on the global IBM Watson services market projects a surge in investments to mitigate cybersecurity risks. According to Fact.MR, a majority of organizations have some level of cybersecurity apparatus in place. However, as Mr. Jha concludes, “tackling the potent cybersecurity threats will require a comprehensive ecosystem, rather than a symbolic front-line defense.”
