LONDON, March 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
All Global, the world's leading healthcare data company, is introducing a series of patient access offers, building off developments in technology and social media to offer unique alternative solutions to traditional research methods in providing greater access to patient audiences previously too difficult to reach. The first of these new offers comes in the area of diabetes, through All Global's partnership with HealthEngage.
"The number of patients with diabetes worldwide is skyrocketing, and innovations in social media provide a new way to engage with these patients about their condition and the complications it causes," says Tony Burke, CEO of All Global. "Our partnership with HealthEngage gives our clients access to a large and growing community of diabetics who are able to instantly share information on their health and wellbeing."
HealthEngage is a free online tool for diabetics to manage and improve their health and to share their information with their healthcare professionals. The growing community of diabetic users is active in over 172 countries and 58 languages, with members tracking, managing and sharing all aspects of their health and wellbeing. This includes glucose (with direct upload from 99% of meters) insulin, foods/diet, medications, exercise, tests, symptoms, goals, as well as general communication, notes and reminders.
Community members are supported on the web, on their mobile devices, and by email. The proprietary widget is available on 40 social networking sites, as well as a mobile application.
