Meet Grace

For Grace, a 58-year-old mother of three who suffers from hypertension and type-2 diabetes, having a detailed conversation with her doctor is hard because she’s busy and can’t keep track of every aspect of her life.

Proteus Discover helps Grace understand how she’s doing, enabling a more meaningful conversation with her doctor and giving her tools and information to help manage her health.

Meet Grace's Doctor

Grace’s doctor noticed that Grace was not responding to the medication he prescribed her, but isn’t sure whether the therapy is ineffective or if lifestyle or irregular medication-taking is a contributing factor.

Proteus Discover increases his understanding of Grace’s daily health habits. He has clear and objective data to use as a conversation guide with Grace as they work together to reach her treatment goal.

The technology that enables Proteus Discover has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the United States, and CE marked per the Medical Device Directive for use in the European Union.

Reducing costs by improving patient health

Grace is not alone in her need to gain control of her hypertension and diabetes. One in four adults in the U.S. have two or more chronic health conditions, contributing to over 75% of national healthcare spending each year. If one of her chronic conditions progresses, Grace could incur over $130,000 in lifetime costs to her health system.

Proteus Discover creates value by providing insights into patient medication-taking and lifestyle outside of the clinic, ultimately bringing clinical, organizational and economic benefits to the health system.
