Intuity Medical, a commercial-stage medical technology and digital health company focused on making life with diabetes easier, announced that the POGO Automatic Blood Glucose Monitor System is now available at the more than 2,200 U.S. pharmacies of Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co.

Intuity Medical’s POGO Automatic is an FDA-cleared automatic blood glucose monitor with 10-test cartridge technology that automatically lances, collects blood, and produces a glucose result at the push of a button and doesn’t require people with diabetes to carry or load separate lancets and test strips.

“For people with diabetes, consistent blood glucose monitoring is essential for managing their disease, but the barriers presented by traditional meters can prevent them from testing regularly,” says Emory Anderson, president and CEO of Intuity Medical, Inc. “Intuity Medical is proud to share a joint commitment with Kroger Health pharmacies to make glucose testing simpler for customers with diabetes. We’ve done this by providing POGO Automatic’s One-Step™ testing, which automatically does the work of lancing and blood collection, freeing people with diabetes from the hassles of traditional glucose testing.”

With POGO Automatic Monitors and Cartridges now available at all Kroger Health pharmacy locations, the simplicity of One-Step testing is easily accessible to many people with diabetes.

Testing blood glucose with POGO Automatic is simple and automatic; users can discreetly test and obtain an accurate glucose result in a matter of seconds.

Eligible, privately insured patients can now save by filling prescriptions at Kroger Health pharmacies for POGO Automatic Test Cartridges and/or a POGO Automatic Monitor through the POGO Automatic Prescription Savings Program.
