"I recently had the pleasure of meeting key NHS clinicians and influencers and learned first-hand about the challenges and opportunities that they're experiencing within the healthcare sector. DarioHealth is well positioned to offer quality digital therapeutic interventions for managing chronic conditions and looks forward to exploring opportunities for integration and partnership with both primary and secondary care providers. Through our collaboration, we will examine the best ways to develop new Dario digital therapeutic solutions for people with chronic conditions within the framework of the NHS."
