DRWF were registration sponsors for this year’s event at Olympia London in November.

Examples of the innovative technology that is improving the lives of people with diabetes took centre stage at the recent Diabetes Professional Care conference.

The conference included a new area dedicated to Technology Presentations which showcased technological products designed to help healthcare professionals better improve the quality of care for people living with diabetes.

Among the product exhibitors were Hicom - exhibiting Diamond – a platform of specialist digital tools that provide core data in standard format for multi-disciplinary diabetes teams, improving interaction and enabling access to patient information in real-time.

The key to Diamond’s success is its ability to save time, reduce human error and duplications, enabling medical professionals to accurately capture, record and report on a wide range of patient data.

Jon Elburn, Electronic Medical Records Product Manager at Hicom, said: “While the setup for diabetes care has traditionally been hospital-centred, we are starting to see a shift taking place where, particularly for type 2 diabetes care, the ability to provide joined-up outpatient care is becoming increasingly important. 

“Diamond is able to support multidisciplinary teams in both the acute and community setting with an integrated model of care by providing a single electronic care record; integration with other, Trust-wide systems such as pathology and PAS; and seamless, paperless communication. 

“Diamond allows clinical teams to maintain high standards of care for a complex condition with increased efficiency and reach.”

Additional product exhibitors included:

MyWay Digital Health (MWDH) - digital platforms that provide access to 250 educational modules in a variety of different formats, including text, animations and short videos.

The Younger Lives Group - made up of world-leading experts in age-based risk assessments and programme design.

Thriva Solutions - The platform provides a turnkey solution for organisations to launch their own patient centric lab services through a simple API, bringing years of experience to provide everything you need to launch diagnostic programmes within weeks.

Hedia - Hedia Diabetes Assistant (HDA) is a class IIb medical device, developed to support patients managing their insulin-requiring diabetes (IRD) and achieve their desired health outcomes and blood glucose control. HDA takes an agnostic approach and connects to BG devices and Smartpens. 

Diabetes Professional Care is supported by DRWF as registration sponsor

Sarah Tutton, DRWF Chief Executive, said: “We have been supporting Diabetes Professional Care since its inception in 2016 as it provides an amazing opportunity for diabetes and related healthcare professionals to come together for learning, with CPD (continuing professional development) accreditation, to support the best possible provision of diabetes care to people living with all types of diabetes.”
