Non-communicable diseases are the leading cause of death and disability across India, including in the poorest states. Effective disease management, particularly for cardiovascular diseases, requires the tracking of several biochemical and physiological parameters over an extended period of time. Currently, patients must go to diagnostic laboratories and doctors' clinics or invest in individual point-of-care devices for measuring the required parameters. The cost and inconvenience of current options lead to inconsistent monitoring, which contribute to suboptimal outcomes. Furthermore, managing multiple individual point-of-devices is challenging and helps track some parameters to the exclusion of others. To address these issues, HealthCubed, a primary care technology company, has designed integrated devices that measure blood glucose, hemoglobin, cholesterol, uric acid, blood pressure, capillary oxygen saturation and pulse rate. Here we report data from clinical studies undertaken in healthy subjects establishing the validity of an integrated device for monitoring multiple parameters.
