Diabetes requires patients and their Doctors to actively and regularly track
their glucose levels and insulin injections. With the Neptun Diabetes Management app, Diabetes
patients can now track their data right on their smartphones. From blood sugar levels and
insulin injections to fitness data, the iOS app takes the place of manual note-keeping. It can
even synchronize automatically with Accu-Chek® glucose tracking devices and insulin injection
pens for easy, stress-free tracking. Neptun Diabetes Management is the first app to combine
blood glucose and insulin data with users’ Apple Health data, allowing doctors and patients to
gain deeper insights for improving their Diabetes therapy.
We developed Neptun Diabetes Management in cooperation with Roche Germany, Linova Software GmbH, and researchers at the Technical University of Munich. Keeping momentum with an efficient, agile process – considering the number of parties involved – was a main challenge and achievement during the project. Regular SCRUM meetings and continuous delivery were key to efficiently bringing the app to market.
Additionally, Neptun Diabetes Management has the classification of Medicine Product Class I. This classification involves additional requirements to fulfil a set of reliability and quality conditions. Extensive automatic and manual testing strategies formed an important part of the development process.
