Thinking Different About Diabetes

The first iPhone connected medical device, the iBGStar enabled instant communication between a patient and an HCP. The iBGStar ignited an entire industry to push diabetes care forward into the modern world. The story of iBGStar started well before the iPhone (we were trying to make an accessory for the iPod). As soon as the iPhone launched, we knew where the future would be. We built our experience making a diabetes management app, and as soon as Apple opened the MFi program, we had a proposal on their desks. Creating the first mass market internet-connected medical device was a tremendous challenge involving the cooperation of regulatory bodies, multinational pharmaceutical companies, and Apple, but we were able to make something truly special and life-changing for millions of people with diabetes.
