Omnis Health Introduces a Diabetes Category First -- Complete Gestational Diabetes Testing Kits

It's Everything Patients Will Need to Proactively and Successfully Monitor and Manage Their Diabetes

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - November 09, 2015) - Omnis Health, a diabetes category leader in innovative, value driven monitoring systems, today announced the introduction of two, first-of-their-kind blood glucose monitoring testing kits specially designed to meet the critical testing needs of pregnant women diagnosed with gestational diabetes. These Complete Gestational Diabetes Monitoring Kits represent a diabetes category first and include a nine-week supply of high-quality testing supplies, featuring the company's Embrace® or EmbraceEVO® blood glucose monitors, 250 test strips, 300 lancets, lancing device, and other testing accessories.

For OB-GYN's, the Embrace® and EmbraceEVO® Complete Gestational Diabetes Monitoring Kits offer patients easy access to accurate, affordable testing. Each kit contains everything patients need to proactively and successfully monitor and manage their diabetes, in compliance with doctor's recommendation, through the end of their pregnancy.

Omnis Health estimates patients can save up to $230* with the Complete Gestational Diabetes Monitoring Kits versus buying the testing products and accessories individually. The alternative to these complete monitoring kits is purchasing all the items separately, which even if some of the costs are covered by insurance, can add up quickly. In fact, the total price of a nine-week kit will likely be less than the cost of some test strip co-pays alone, while noting the ability to having everything on hand for testing also delivers a valuable convenience to the mom.

"The third-trimester of pregnancy is stressful enough without the added concern of gestational diabetes. We recognized doctors' need to make it as easy and affordable as possible for their patients to accurately and proactively test their diabetes in order to ensure a safe pregnancy while protecting the health of their babies," said Cathy Pereira, Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing.

"The all-in-one concept of the Gestational Diabetes Monitoring Kit lets moms-to-be purchase everything they need to monitor and manage gestational diabetes for up to nine weeks in one trip to the pharmacy or a few simple clicks online. Best of all they can save considerably versus buying the monitor, test strips, and testing accessories separately, so they experience less hassle, less cost, and more peace of mind," Pereira said.

Patients who purchase an Embrace® or EmbraceEVO® Complete Gestational Diabetes Monitoring Kit can also enroll in the Embrace Better Care program designed by Omnis Health. This program proactively delivers important diabetes education information and money-saving coupons to support and encourage patients to better monitor and manage their diabetes. The program also features the EmbraceIt mobile app that puts testing reminders, diabetes education support for expectant moms, and retailer-specific coupons at the fingertips of patients to help them embrace better care.

The Complete Gestational Diabetes Monitoring Kit is not the only innovation from Omnis Health. The company's Embrace® blood glucose monitor was one of the diabetes category's first "talking" meters. The Embrace® meter talks patients through the testing process and communicates test results.
