A better life for people with chronic conditions.
Brighter aims to be one of the global leaders in mobile health, providing access to high-quality outpatient solutions and services to people across the globe. We aim to reduce healthcare costs and improve health outcomes by inviting everyone to become part of the Benefit Loop®: a data-driven solution that provides a gateway to a marketplace for user-owned and user-generated health data. The Benefit Loop is a key part of Brighter’s vision of promoting behavioral change throughout the healthcare ecosystem.
Tackling the diabetes epidemic.
We are currently focused on addressing the global diabetes epidemic with our solution Actiste® Diabetes Management as a Service. Diabetes is the world’s fastest-growing chronic condition, affecting more than 425 million adults worldwide (one in 11 adults), with the number set to grow to 629 million by 2045 (one in 10 adults). Many children suffer from diabetes too.
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 727 billion is used to treat diabetes each year, representing 12% of global health expenditure. This figure is expected to rise to USD 776 billion by 2045.
(All figures are International Diabetes Federation estimates from 2017.)
Data-driven diabetes care.
The trend in diabetes care is to provide patients with ways to better manage their own treatment, and thereby ease the burden on healthcare systems. We have created Actiste to meet this global need. By combining the three essential items for diabetes care – a blood sampler, a blood glucose meter, and an insulin pen – in a single cloud-connected device, Actiste simplifies daily treatment and makes it easy to share critical values with loved ones and primary caregivers.
With the Benefit Loop establishing a continuous flow of valid data between diabetics and their caregivers, Actiste improves patient adherence, eases concern among family members, allows doctors to quickly change treatment plans, and makes more efficient use of limited healthcare resources.
While Actiste is our current focus, we believe the health data generated through this area and other initiatives we are involved in will provide a solid base for further business opportunities in clinical care and research.
