After introducing Flo to support their diabetic caseload, the team have renewed a patient’s confidence in managing her condition giving the patient freedom to get on with her life. 

Since September 2014, the patient had been receiving twice-daily visits and phone calls from the district nurse and diabetes team until the district nurse team recognised that Flo could be a potential source of support for the patient in administering her insulin as prescribed.

So far the patient’s response to Flo has been overwhelmingly positive and to date no further visits or telephone consultations with the teams have been required regarding the patient’s diabetes care. This has allowed the patient to continue life as normal, reduced condition associated anxiety and released up an average of 90 minutes of the nurse’s time every day. The patient has now requested to use Flo to prompt and report blood glucose readings.

A full case study of the team’s fantastic success with Flo will be made available shortly.
