To foray into remote hypertension management
BeatO has announced collaboration with OMRON Healthcare as a part of expanding its footprint in the remote management of lifestyle-related chronic conditions associated with hypertension.
The partnership entails connection of OMRON BP Monitors in the BeatO App ecosystem allowing users to gain real-time advice and more informed management on the steps to manage blood pressure control based on the patient’s readings and trends. Supported with BeatO’s team of 25 doctors and health coaches, the remote and virtual management on the BeatO App will enable seamless and real time support on nutrition, lifestyle and medicine adherence for patients based on their blood pressure readings and trends. This service will also be integrated into BeatO’s subscription plans that involve medicine deliveries, insurance and diagnostics making it an end-to-end solution just like the existing service of BeatO to manage diabetes.
Commenting on the partnership, Gautam Chopra, Co-founder and CEO, BeatO said, “With this partnership, BeatO members will be able to monitor their blood pressure readings and receive personalised insights and real time support. Expanding the BeatO app ecosystem to hypertension allows us to now become a truly whole person platform and empower our members with more tools.”
Masanori Matsubara, India MD, OMRON Healthcare, added, “The association will not only help in reducing the in-hospital risks of COVID spread but will also help in giving a push to the adoption of digital BP monitors amongst the masses.”
