The system includes the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Centre and is affiliated with the Thomas Jefferson University. JeffersonHealth has a track record of supporting digital health businesses seeking a route into the US market through collaboration and shares an interest in the target disease areas on which Sensyne Health is focused.
As part of the collaboration, Jefferson Health are piloting GDm-Health in their patients who develop diabetes during pregnancy.Jefferson Health has also supported Sensyne Health’s marketing efforts to secure wider adoption of GDm-Health across the US.The collaboration has now extended to include the identification of new market opportunities for all of Sensyne Health’s software products and input into product definition and design validation.
The work with Jefferson Health is central to Sensyne Health’s US go-to-market strategy for its software products including GDm-Health(monitoring diabetes in pregnancy), EDGE (monitoring chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at home) and Support-HF (monitoring heart failure at home). Additionally, the collaboration is expected to lead to the development of new product features and wholly new products that will benefit patients in the NHS as well as those in the US and other countries.
The products connect patients, clinicians and researchers, generating large databases of phenotypic data, and enabling discovery research to improve patient outcomes.This data will further enrich the clinical insights that Sensyne Health can provide to support the development of new therapeutics.
The work that Sensyne Health and JeffersonHealth are undertaking will provide a platform on which Sensyne Health’s distributor partner in the US can build a robust sales model.
