‘Diabetes Journey’ app launched

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

With a view to improving quality of treatment, the country’s first government recognised diabetes treatment guideline was launched yesterday.  “Diabetes Care BADAS Guideline 2019” was prepared jointly by Diabetic Association of Bangladesh (BADAS) and Non-Communicable Diseases Control Programme of Directorate General of Health Services, said a press release.

Additionally, to introduce digital approach in healthcare and empower physicians, an application-based treatment approach, ‘Diabetes Journey’ app was also launched on the same day. The app was launched jointly by BADAS and Novo Nordisk based on the new diabetes treatment guideline, added the release. The guideline and application were launched at Dhaka Club in the capital.

This guideline will help to model and standardise the treatment outline of the diabetic patients, and will ensure optimal control for better outcome, said Professor Dr. AK Azad Khan, president of BADAS.

The diabetes journey app will empower the physicians to take effective treatment decisions based on patients’ types and needs, Dr Khan said.  

BADAS aims to transform diabetes care in Bangladesh so that patients can get access to quality care and better health, said Md Sayef Uddin, general secretary of BADAS.

As a global leader in diabetes care, Novo Nordisk has taken many initiatives to introduce digital approach in healthcare, said Anand Shetty, managing director of Novo Nordisk.

The diabetes journey application and the country’s first national diabetes patients’ registry are few examples of digitalisation in Bangladesh and are aligned with the government’s vision for “Digital Bangladesh”, Shetty said.  

Winnie Estrup Petersen, ambassador, Embassy of Denmark said that addressing non-communicable diseases is one of the major steps to achieve sustainable development goals in health sector and she is pleased to see the positive steps taken by the Bangladesh government in this regard.
