ACCU-CHEK Meters Rank Highest in Overall Satisfaction for Second Consecutive Year
J.D. Power has announced that Roche Diabetes Care’s ACCU-CHEK products rank "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Blood Glucose Meters” among adults living with diabetes in the U.S. for the second year in a row according to the 2013 Blood Glucose Meter Satisfaction StudySM. In a study comprised of 2,123 participants, ACCU-CHEK meters ranked highest among competitors in respondents’ assessments of key blood glucose meter characteristics, including meter performance, features and test strip cost.
“Blood glucose meters help people living with diabetes make important, daily decisions about their self-care,” said Debbie Hinnen, a diabetes educator and the director of education services at Mid-America Diabetes Association. “It is important that people with diabetes talk with a healthcare provider about the importance of using a quality meter that will best suit their health needs and consistently provide accurate readings.”
Roche, the maker of ACCU-CHEK products, has been a leading provider of blood glucose monitoring systems for nearly 40 years. The ACCU-CHEK product portfolio includes multiple meter and test strip combinations to accommodate the individual lifestyle and medical needs of Americans managing diabetes over the long term. This includes the ACCU-CHEK Nano SmartView and ACCU-CHEK Aviva Plus systems. These products provide users with consistently accurate readings. Individuals with diabetes trust their meters to help them make critical health choices every day, such as determining how much insulin to administer, modifying carbohydrate intake and adjusting activity levels.
“Roche is pleased that ACCU-CHEK products have retained this prestigious ranking,” said Marc Gibeley, head of Roche Diabetes Care North America. “This ranking represents our ongoing commitment to provide blood glucose meters that help improve the lives of people living with diabetes.”
