UPDATED: Novo to Launch Connected Pens and New Connected Care Partnerships with Dexcom, Roche, and Glooko

UPDATED: Both Novo connected pens utilize NFC to transmit data. Previously, it was thought that the pens would use Bluetooth since Dexcom and Roche also use Bluetooth.

With the start of the 2018 EASD conference, Novo Nordisk announced upcoming plans to launch two connected reusable pens (NovoPen 6 and NovoPen Echo) in addition to digital health partnerships with Dexcom, Roche, and Glooko. According to the press release, Novo plans to initiate the launch of its connected pens in Q1 2019. Importantly, Novo also disclosed intentions to launch connected disposable pens “later in 2019.” Below, FENIX provides thoughts on Novo’s connected pens and new partnerships.
