With a goal of integrating data and technology to help streamline diabetes management, Eli Lilly and Company signed strategic international agreements with four companies – DexCom, Inc., Glooko Inc., myDiabby Healthcare and Roche – to advance connected solutions and streamline care for people living with diabetes in markets outside of the United States. These companies offer unique diabetes management platforms that will be compatible with Lilly’s Tempo Pen™ (approved in several global markets) and Tempo Smart Button™ (currently in late-stage development) to support people with diabetes and healthcare professionals.
The Tempo Pen is a modified version of Lilly’s existing prefilled, disposable insulin pen to which the Tempo Smart Button – pending CE (Conformité Européenne or European Conformity) marking – attaches. Through these new agreements, the Tempo Smart Button will pair with software and/or medical devices offered by Dexcom, Glooko, myDiabby Healthcare and Roche, with its mySugr app, to facilitate the integration of personalized data and actionable insights.
Lilly aims to receive CE mark for the Tempo Smart Button later in 2021 and will launch the Tempo Pen and Tempo Smart Button in several international markets following this certification.
