A major obstacle to optimized treatment of Type 2 diabetes is the lack of data. BD’s innovative solution is a mobile patient app and clinician portal built on Couchbase and Couchbase Mobile. The solution connects medical devices with a mobile app to automatically log real-time data on patients and give them custom alerts and recommendations. Doctors also use the data to determine the best course of treatment. Couchbase enables the app to work offline and securely syncs patient data from device to cloud.

“We’re using the whole Couchbase stack for mobile – Couchbase Lite on the phone, Sync Gateway in the middle, and the Couchbase cluster backing Sync Gateway.”
