Nipro, a multinational medical corporation from Japan, has partnered with Vietnam-based FPT Telecom’s FPT Medicare on a strategic co-operation agreement to deliver digital medical devices with international standards and affordability.

Through this collaboration, the two companies aim to provide global smart medical devices and services to the Vietnamese population. This initiative directly addresses the pressing demand for high-quality healthcare and helps alleviate the escalating financial burden associated with healthcare services. 

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), especially continuous bio-monitoring devices, are connected with health platforms to provide available personal health data and a comprehensive medical picture.

FPT Medicare has obtained full authorisation for the distribution of the Nipro Premier, α Blood Glucose Monitoring System, for all pharmacies and medical device stores throughout Vietnam.

The blood glucose meter is available in over 1,600 Long Châu pharmacies and the FPT Telecom ecosystem of four million households. This is recognised by both corporations to provide solutions to at least one million diabetes patients, or approximately 20 per cent of the Vietnamese market, in the next three years.

In December 2023, the FPT Medicare diabetic management platform was introduced, designed to create personalised blood glucose testing schedules by leveraging patient input. Patient-recorded data will be generated as an insightful blood glucose report and shared with caregivers and physicians once requested. The application offers valuable features empowering patients in efficiently managing their progress and enhancing treatment outcomes.
