The two diabetes care giants have teamed up to integrate dosing data from Novo Nordisk's smart insulin pens with Medtronic's Guardian Connect continuous glucose monitors (CGMs). This landmark move is critical for enabling greater interoperability in a relatively fragmented diabetes ecosystem. Both these industry heavyweights command a significant market share of the trillion-dollar diabetes industry, and this partnership enables millions of diabetes patients to seamlessly connect two critical parameters in diabetes management, insulin and blood glucose data. This partnership also unlocks the potential to gain deeper insights by combining larger datasets, helping support new business opportunities and better outcomes for patients.
