ALR Technologies has obtained the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) approval for its Health-e-Connect (HeC) System for remote monitoring of diabetes patients.

HeC is a web-based patient management platform designed for medical professionals in order to improve compliance and management of care plans of patients in their homes.

ALR Technologies CEO Sidney Chan said the HeC System represents a breakthrough for clinician/patient communication to enhance disease management and improve health outcomes.

"we have been cultivating relationships with manufacturers of diabetes test supplies and insurance companies to help facilitate a successful launch," Chan said.
