A remote patient monitoring system from Israeli-founded digital therapeutics company DarioHealth was selected by Alabama Regional Medical Services (ARMS) to improve the management of hypertension across a diverse patient population in that US state.

More than 40 percent of Alabama residents report having high blood pressure, and those living in lower-income areas are more likely to be at increased risk and experience worse outcomes. In addition, many residents are underserved and uninsured.

The partnership with Dario provides ARMS with innovative technologies and personalized support proven to engage patients, including those with technology barriers.

The contract represents the second competitive win for Dario’s remote patient monitoring business in the last month. In June, the Coastal Family Health Center network serving underserved counties in and around the Mississippi Gulf Coast chose Dario’s platform for managing hypertension and the prevention of related cardiac events.

“Alabama Regional Medical Services joins a growing number of providers and health systems choosing DarioHealth’s RPM solution to help address the stubborn challenge of improving patient health behaviors,” commented Rick Anderson, president and GM of North America at DarioHealth.

“Much like other recent provider wins, our selection by ARMS was largely due to our ability to personalize Dario’s RPM solution to meet the unique needs of the population while supporting the clinical and financial goals of the organization.”

Dario, founded in 2011, has digital management solutions for diabetes, hypertension, weight and musculoskeletal health. Now headquartered in New York, it maintains an R&D center in Caesarea.
