A global diabetes care company has launched the next-generation Eversense® E3 Continuous Glucose Monitoring System for people in the US.
Ascensia Diabetes Care has launched the latest Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System alongside the new Eversense PASS savings programme.
Developed by Senseonics Holdings, Eversense E3 has been approved for six months of use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) earlier this year, making it the longest lasting CGM sensor available in the country.
To increase access to the Eversense E3 CGM System and its benefits, Ascensia has designed and introduced Eversense PASS, a new Payment Assistance and Simple Savings Program.
Under the program, Eversense users will only pay $99 out of pocket for their first Eversense E3 Sensor and Smart Transmitter.
For each sensor thereafter, users pay no more than $100 per month, or $600 for the duration of each sensor wear.
Robert Schumm, President at Ascensia Diabetes Care, said: “We are thrilled to offer Eversense E3 to people with diabetes in the US and are proud to do this alongside a favourable Payment Assistance and Savings Program.
“As the longest-lasting CGM system available at up to six months of sensor wear, Eversense E3’s offering is truly differentiated, and we believe it is important to make the system as affordable as possible.”
He added: “We have been working closely with payers on coverage and our dedicated CGM commercial team is eager to introduce the product to more people, so they can experience the unique benefits of the Eversense system.
“As a company with a sole focus on improving the lives of people with diabetes, we can’t wait to get this innovative product into the hands of people with diabetes and their physicians across the country.”
The Eversense E3 CGM System, which includes an innovative design modification to enhance sensor longevity, offers people with diabetes:
The longest lasting CGM available, with up to 6-month sensor wear duration and essentially two sensor insertion and removal procedures per year.
Exceptional accuracy, with a mean absolute relative difference (MARD) of 8.5 per cent demonstrated in the PROMISE Study for the duration of sensor wear.
A fully implantable fluorescence-based sensor, with a removable smart transmitter that provides discreet on-body vibe alerts and transmits data to a mobile app.
Fewer calibrations, with primarily one calibration required per day after day 21 of use.
Elaine Anderson, Head of Eversense CGM Business Unit at Ascensia Diabetes Care, said: “The evolution of continuous glucose monitoring has been one of the biggest developments in diabetes care and the Eversense E3 CGM System is another significant step forward for people with the condition.
“It’s so important to offer choice through a variety of solutions and to listen to what people really need from technology to live life as fully as possible.”
She added: “Eversense E3 exemplifies this approach, offering people with diabetes an exciting new CGM option with outstanding flexibility, convenience and accuracy.”
