Noverca's 2.0 - A mobile platform for the monitoring and management of diabetes
ROME, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Noverca – the first and currently only Italian 'Full MVNO' – has expanded its product offerings by announcing its presence in the Health and Wellness Sector.
An innovative telematic support model to support diabetes treatment has been developed and launched thanks to the long-term partnership between Acotel Group (Parent company of Noverca) and Fatebenefratelli Hospital. Davide Carnevale, Marketing & Sales Director at Noverca Italia, made the announcement during an Italy Expo Comm Italia 2011 press conference.
The telematic support product ensures a constant monitoring solution which enables patients to access their own health activity data on multiple channels including SMS, web, and Smartphone applications, and allows them to share the data with others, including doctors and family, resulting in heightened awareness and overall superior care.
"The partnership with Fatebenefratelli and the monitoring of diabetic patients is only the first step into the world of Healthcare," said Davide Carnevale. "Moreover, we are ready to cover many other aspects of the Health and Wellness field."
At the heart of the Noverca system is the patent pending MiniMAU (Management Automation Unit) with embedded SIM Noverca 2.0. The MiniMAU operates as a patient data access point to the GSM network and interfaces, via either IrDA, Bluetooth, or USB, with medical devices used by patients (e.g. glucometers) while communicating with the central platform.
The platform processes data relating to medical indicators of the patient and provides a full range of analyses useful for diagnostic and management purposes. If requested, the platform will automatically send alerts via SMS and/or email, thereby permitting healthcare professionals to intervene and modify treatment in real time.
"In addition to our numerous mobile phone services," Davide Carnevale continues, "We will shortly be launching additional 2.0 services in the Health & Wellness, Security and Energy Control management sectors, as well as introducing a new and important concept of social networking."
