OUR VISION

We firmly believe that the unprecedented advancement of information
technologies will contribute to solving certain healthcare system issues,
notably related to chronic disease expansion.



At Voluntis, we believe these remarkable changes are the pivotal factors that are already transforming healthcare systems. We are poised and ready to catapult the best from advanced technologies to improving healthcare.

Committed to this vision, Voluntis designs digital therapeutics that transform healthcare by:

  • designing integrated care services
  • aligning the interests of patients, providers and payers
  • driving costs down while improving quality
  • establishing a collaborative relationship between patients and their doctors

OUR OFFER


DIGITAL THERAPEUTICS

At Voluntis, we develop state-of-the-art digital therapeutics to accompany
and enhance a specific medication or medical device.

We design our digital therapeutics in a user-friendly manner
to augment the real-life value of therapeutics by:

For example, we design clinical algorithms that support decision-making, such as medication dosage.

For example, we securely connect patients with caregivers to activate remote operations, such as monitoring, treatment adjustment or coaching.

For example, we promote data sharing between doctors and patients to foster engagement and enable effective task delegation among healthcare professionals so as to optimize time.


As an accompaniment to existing medication or medical devices, digital therapeutic apps aim to monitor side effects, guide symptom management, promote protocol adherence, recommend dosage or connect patients with their healthcare teams.

According to prevailing regulations, our digital therapeutics could be classified as a software medical device. To strictly comply with regulations, Voluntis has developed extensive regulatory expertise and implemented high quality standards.

As such, digital therapeutics have the potential to empower patients, prevent complications and, ultimately, augment the real-life value of a medication.

We conduct clinical studies to demonstrate the value and medical benefits of our digital therapeutics. In the diabetes m-health field, our digital therapeutic solution is the most extensively studied on the market.

Voluntis develops proprietary digital therapeutics but also provides partners with development and regulatory capabilities to elaborate their own.

OUR EXPERTISE

OUR DIGITAL THERAPEUTICS


Our diabetes solutions are designed to support type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients throughout the insulin therapy pathway. Our digital therapeutics in diabetes are prescription medical devices.

Insulia®

Insulia® is a digital therapeutic for people with type 2 diabetes who are being treated with long-acting basal insulin.
Insulia is a prescription-only medical device that provides patients with insulin dose recommendations and educational coaching messages based on blood glucose values and other diabetes-related data. Insulia works with insulin Lantus® and insulin Levemir® and enables a wide variety of treatment plan configurations that are based on scientifically supported and well-accepted insulin adjustment rules. Insulia® is accessible to the patient via a web portal or on iOS and Android mobile devices (smartphone or tablet).

Insulia is a regulated healthcare product that was granted a CE Mark and FDA clearance in 2016. It is approved for use in the USA and the EU.

Diabeo®

Diabeo® is a digital solution for type 1 and type 2 patients treated on a basal-bolus insulin regimen. It provides therapeutic and decision-making support for effective diabetes management to help adult patients dose their basal and bolus insulin, facilitate interactions between patients and their healthcare professionals, support remote management and the implementation of telemedicine services. Diabeo® suggests insulin dosage, through algorithmic calculations that are specific to the patient and based on their particular doses. Diabeo® was conceived as part of an extensive clinical program including 3 clinical studies conducted in partnership with Sanofi and the CERITD over the past 10 years.

Diabeo® is a regulated healthcare product that was granted a CE Mark in 2013. Diabeo® is not approved for use in the United States.

Diabeo® is a registered trademark of Sanofi.
Insulia® is a registered trademark of Voluntis.

COAGULATION

In anticoagulation treatments, compliance is crucial: the INR (International Normalized Ratio) must be regularly measured to ensure the appropriate dosage of the vitamin K antagonist treatment.

In collaboration with Roche Diagnostics, Voluntis has developed a digital therapeutic to enhance the CoaguChek INR self-testing device.

This solution, named CoaguChek Link, centralizes the INR data measured by patients, connects patients with the independent diagnostic testing facility and enables effective telemonitoring by healthcare professionals.

Thus, CoaguChek Link simplifies care delivery, ensures compliance and enables doctors and patients to stay connected and work together on managing the anticoagulant treatment.

HEMOPHILIA

In hemophilia, we work to help patients manage their condition. Our innovative solution aims to simplify the remote monitoring of bleeding events as well as inventory medication management.
