About BD and Couchbase

As a leading medical technology company, BD is constantly looking for new ways to improve diagnostics and the delivery of health care. In the case of Type 2 diabetes, a major obstacle to optimized treatment has been the lack of individualized data. It’s too difficult for patients to collect the data, and even when they do, doctors don’t have the time to sort through it all. BD’s innovative solution is a mobile patient app and clinician portal built on Couchbase and Couchbase Mobile. The solution uses connected medical devices and a mobile app to automatically log real-time data on a patient’s insulin and glucose levels, activities, meals, and location. Based on the data, the mobile app provides patients with customized alerts and recommendations. The clinician portal collects all the data and presents it to doctors in an efficient format for making diagnoses and determining the best course of treatment. Couchbase provides the offline capabilities of the patient application and secure synchronization of patient data from the medical IoT devices to the cloud. BD chose Couchbase because Couchbase made it extremely easy to launch the app and portal and to add rules over time as the solution evolved.
