Confidant Systems is a leading developer of diabetes health monitoring solutions.
Confidant Systems was founded in 2003 with the vision of helping people suffering from chronic diseases manage their health easily while maintaining an active lifestyle. The ubiquity of cell phones provided a natural platform for our suite of applications.
Every Confidant solution supports our fundamental belief that by empowering and inspiring the individual, we can greatly increase the likelihood of treatment adherence and improve the patient's health.
Our patent-pending technology streamlines the collection of key data, using wireless technology to upload information from the individual's home medical devices to a centralized server. The data is then compared to pre-set individualized treatment regimens and thresholds. The Confidant application software interprets the data and generates individualized automated feedback delivered to the individual's cell phone in real time. An extensive electronic log created for each patient remains accessible by the caregiver, patient, or guardian through secure Web access.
The Confidant cell phone-based solution for diabetes patients stimulates positive, healthy behavioral changes through automated monitoring and feedback. With a rich feature set that enhances patient-caregiver communications, it supports self-management and delivers better disease management outcomes.
The Confidant cell phone-based weight management tool extends behavior modification beyond the residential weight loss clinic to the individual's home. In addition to automating the collection of weight from an electronic scale, the application presents an interactive set of questions, interprets the answers through a decision tree, and provides feedback to support positive behaviors.
