Welcome to Brighter! We’re on a mission to improve healthcare globally.
The change healthcare is waiting for.
We are a health-tech company from Sweden with a vision of a world where managing chronic diseases is no longer a struggle.
Our daily-care solutions facilitate the flow of real-life treatment data between chronic-disease patients, their loved ones and their care providers – improving quality of life, easing the burden on healthcare systems, and opening new opportunities for data-driven research.
“We need to use smart ways to drive the behavioral change healthcare is waiting for. Ways that help people to treat themselves, using data to improve outcomes both for the individual and for the healthcare system.”
Truls Sjöstedt, Founder and Chairman of the Board
The Story of Brighter
A life-changing event and the spark to birth an idea. This is The Brighter Story!
Tackling diabetes first.
Brighter is currently focused on treating the global diabetes epidemic through our mobile-connected solution Actiste.
Actiste is based on patented technology for the remote monitoring and collection of data on specified bio-markers and volumes of medication injected. We believe this data-centric approach is key to providing smarter care for both diabetes and other chronic conditions too.
Diabetes is the world’s fastest-growing chronic condition, affecting some 463 million adults globally (1 in 11). Up to half of adults living with diabetes are undiagnosed.
Diabetes must be monitored daily, as the condition can lead to a wide range of serious health complications. In addition to the personal suffering it causes, diabetes also represents a massive financial cost and places a huge burden on healthcare systems. Today, approximately USD 760 billion is used to treat diabetes each year, representing 10% of global health expenditure. This figure is expected to rise to USD 845 billion by 2045.
People with diabetes, their families, healthcare institutions, insurance companies, doctors and nurses are all waiting for a better way to administer and monitor treatment; a way that makes life easier for the people and families affected by the condition, while also easing the burden on healthcare systems and care providers.
This is the global challenge that Brighter is addressing with our Actiste solution.
