PARSIPPANY, N.J. – Ascensia Diabetes Care has updated its Contour Diabetes app to enable seamless integration with Apple Health. Connectivity between the two apps means users are able to share blood glucose readings and carbohydrate data from the app with Apple Health. “This upgrade is part of the Ascensia’s focus on interconnected diabetes management and building a seamless integrated journey between device, systems and smartphone apps that will allow people with diabetes to more easily and effectively manage their diabetes,” the company stated. “This upgrade is the result of feedback from users of the Contour Diabetes app vie App Store reviews and social media.” Once enabled, data from the Contour Diabetes app will automatically transfer and be visible in the Health app. Ascensia says many people with diabetes are already using the Health app as the primary application.
