Providers Can Bridge the Gap Between Inpatient and Outpatient Glycemic Management with Monarch’s EndoTool® Glucose Management System and Voluntis’ Insulia®
Cambridge, MA, and Charlotte, NC, June 20, 2018 – Monarch Medical Technologies, the leader in precision insulin dosing for optimized inpatient glucose management, and Voluntis (Euronext Paris: FRXX – VTX), a company specialized in digital therapeutics, today announced a new strategic partnership aimed at improving the coordination of glycemic management for patients with insulin dosing recommendations in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.
Monarch is the developer of the EndoTool Glucose Management System, an FDA-cleared software suite, providing safe, individualized, and precise inpatient insulin dosing recommendations through its two applications, EndoTool IV for intravenous insulin therapy and EndoTool SubQ for subcutaneous insulin therapy.
Voluntis’ Insulia is an FDA-cleared, prescription-only digital therapeutic for people and their care teams using basal insulin to treat type 2 diabetes. Insulia provides automated basal insulin dose recommendations and personalized coaching messages, while enabling the health care team to remotely monitor progress.
In the U.S., 7.2 million of the total 30.3 million individuals with diabetes are undiagnosed, and many first find out about their diagnosis and initiate insulin treatment while in the hospital. These patients can feel lost when transitioning from the highly-regimented inpatient hospital setting to being on their own in an outpatient setting. The objective in combining the power of these two systems is to take patients from successful insulin dosing in the hospital, using the EndoTool Glucose Management System, to continued effective insulin treatment at home, using Insulia for daily follow-up.
“We are pleased to partner with Monarch and believe that our two organizations have great synergy to provide healthcare institutions with a comprehensive solution to manage glucose from the hospital to home,” said Pierre Leurent, Chief Executive Officer, Voluntis. “With both EndoTool and Insulia, providers can be confident that their patients continue to receive personalized dosing recommendations at home, to achieve and maintain target glucose levels.”
The partnership between the two companies supports adherence to insulin dosing regimens grounded in evidence-based standards of care throughout all care settings. Within the hospital, the use of EndoTool has been shown to significantly reduce hypoglycemia rates, among other patient outcomes, and Insulia has been shown to effectively support diabetes management in the outpatient setting.
“Across the country, every hospital’s patient population with a diagnosis of diabetes is growing, and hospitals need to not only have a better solution to ensure they manage hyperglycemia and avoid hypoglycemia while in the hospital, but also once the patient is home,” said Linda Beneze, President and Chief Executive Officer, Monarch Medical Technologies. “We are proud to partner with Voluntis and provide a solution to support glycemic management across the continuum of care. With improved glycemic control from hospital to home, episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia decrease, infections rates decline, and the chances of readmissions are reduced.”
Representatives from the two companies will be present at the upcoming American Diabetes Association 78th Scientific Sessions taking place in Orlando, FL on June 22-26. To learn more about the partnership, visit Monarch at Booth #516 and Voluntis at Booth #402.

Insulia® provides automated basal insulin dose recommendations and coaching messages for people with type 2 diabetes while enabling the health care team to remotely monitor progress. A healthcare practitioner prescribes Insulia using their dedicated web portal and sets up the treatment plan rules that will adjust basal insulin dosing based on the person’s specific needs. The user then receives an activation code to get started with their personalized app. Once downloaded, the app uses blood glucose readings and any hypo symptoms to recommend doses in real-time. These are constantly updated using clinical algorithms built into the application. Data is automatically shared with the health care team, who can remotely monitor the patient’s progress toward their goal thanks to tailored notifications. This enables providers to deliver tailored telemedicine services, a practice increasingly supported by payers worldwide. Insulia is available for people using any brand of basal insulin including Lantus®, Levemir®, Toujeo®, Tresiba® (U-100) and Basaglar®.
