ALR Technologies Announces FDA 510(k) Filing for Health-e-Connect (HeC) System -- Health Care for Diabetes Patients
ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - July 26, 2010) - ALR Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: ALRT) announces that on July 23, 2010 the Company submitted a 510(k) application to the FDA for its proprietary Health-e-Connect (HeC) System. The HeC system is an internet-based product intended for diabetic patients and their health care providers to improve communication and monitoring of patients' health management programs. One aspect of the system is that HeC will incorporate data uploaded from patients' glucometers into the ALRT database to quickly assess user compliance and performance compared to provider set targets. The HeC system currently supports data transfer from glucometers manufactured by Abbott, Bayer, Lifescan (a Johnson & Johnson company) and Roche.
In a recently presented clinical evaluation, diabetic patients using the HeC system showed statistically significant improvement in A1c when compared to a control group using standard methods for monitoring and feedback.
