Agile Edge Technologies, Inc. Signs Partnership Agreement with Entre Systems for Direct Sales to the Military Medical Market

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Agile Edge Technologies (AET) partnership agreement with Entra Health Systems will provide access to the latest cutting edge medical technology to our nations Military Service Personnel.

Entra Health Systems, an international applied healthcare technology company today introduced the MyGlucoHealth Bluetooth®-enabled blood glucose meter as an integrated telehealth solution for improving the care and monitoring of diabetics within U.S. military health. MyGlucoHealth is a comprehensive wireless diabetes management platform that is based on the MyGlucoHealth meter, the first FDA cleared and CE certified Bluetooth device of its kind in the world.

MyGlucoHealth monitors a patient’s day-to-day blood sugar readings and communicates that status directly to designated military healthcare providers. At the same time, MyGlucoHealth provides direct feedback and resources to keep the patient informed and motivated to take direct control over their personal condition.

To facilitate the roll out of MyGlucoHealth to the U.S. military medical commands, Entra Health signed a strategic sales partnership agreement with Agile Edge Technologies (AET) of McLean Virginia. AET will direct the sale of MyGlucoHealth diabetic care technology to all major commands including the Army Medical Department (AMEDD), the Army’s Telemedicine Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) and the Veterans Administration.

“The goal of integrating the MyGlucoHealth telehealth platform into the military medical environment is to optimize the monitoring and treatment of diabetics worldwide before, during and after deployments, while taking steps to reduce costs and avoid acute events,” said Richard Strobridge, Chief Executive Officer of Entra Health Systems. “Using MyGlucoHealth within the military will greatly extend the reach of the physician and improve the continuity of care for every soldier, sailor or Marine throughout medical commands worldwide.”

“Army Medical alone represents one of the largest health care networks in the world, managing the care of three million beneficiaries worldwide,” said Gerry Newland, Executive Vice President of Agile Edge Technologies. “We believe MyGlucoHealth can be fully integrated with existing patient care solutions within the military medicine environment. The transient nature of the military makes MyGlucoHealth an excellent solution to centralize monitoring while providing greater efficiency and improved care.”

The Bluetooth communication built-in to every MyGlucoHealth meter connects patients with a real-time online data collection network to upload and manage blood tests using a mobile phone or PC. Within the hospital, clinic or forward medical commands, physicians can log-in to the MyGlucoHealth Physicians’ Portal to independently view a full patient dashboard, evaluate graphs and data interpretations, as well as set monitoring alerts to be notified directly or alert local personnel. Access permission to the Physician Portal can be granted to multiple clinicians to view a specific population of patient data. Data from the Portal can be merged with the patient’s health record stored in the centralized Hospital Information Systems (HIS).
