Omnis Health, a value leader in diabetes monitoring systems, today announced the launch of the new EmbraceEVO, a blood glucose meter with a sleek, compact design. The EmbraceEVO is uniquely available as an affordable all-in-one starter kit for value and convenience.
“Our company is committed to delivering healthcare innovations and value to both patients and supply partners. We are proud to be offering this cost-effective system that will benefit distributors, pharmacists and consumers alike,” said Rob Burton, president of Omnis Health. “The EmbraceEVO meter and test strips are positioned to provide end-users with an affordable cash-pay option that, in many cases, would be less than a co-pay through Medicare or third-party commercial insurance.”
The EmbraceEVO Monitoring Kit is pre-packaged with meter, 50 test strips, lancets, a lancing device and everything a patient needs to begin testing. Utilizing Omnis Heath’s proprietary Instant Three Step Verification test strip technology, EmbraceEVO provides accurate results in six seconds.
The EmbraceEVO meter has a compact design with a large display and easy-to-read menu icons. It automatically stores up to 300 test and control results with date and time, and allows for 7-, 14- and 30-day averaging so patients and their healthcare providers can effectively track and control blood glucose levels.
According to the National Institutes of Health, there are more than 25.8 million Americans living with diabetes, 8.3 percent of the U.S. population. The number of people diagnosed with diabetes has risen from 1.5 million in 1958 to 18.8 million in 2010, an increase of epidemic proportions. Diabetes is a group of diseases marked by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. Diabetes can lead to serious complications and premature death, but people with diabetes can take steps to control the disease and lower the risk of complications.
