Ascensia Diabetes Care takes part in MedTech Europe's 'Connecting the Dots' Film Series, with a film on Eversense® CGM

Connecting the Dots is an exciting new film series showcasing the pivotal role of medical technologies in improving the healthcare landscape

Parsippany, N.J.  , Dec. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Ascensia Diabetes Care, a global diabetes care company, announces its participation in a new film series featuring the story of patient advocate and Eversense® user Troy Ita. Presented by MedTech Europe and including a film produced for the organization by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions, the branded content studio of BBC Studios, the 'Connecting the Dots' series brings into focus the evolution of medical technologies, celebrating both cutting-edge innovations and enduring healthcare solutions that empower people. The series is available on

The series is a collection of short films selected by MedTech Europe to explore innovations in medical technology that are helping to form the future of healthcare and guide a path towards a healthier future for the global population. One of twenty films included in the series, Ascensia's mini-documentary style video focuses on Troy's journey with diabetes and how the evolution in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology has supported him to live a fuller, less interrupted life. In particular, the film highlights the transformation that Eversense, the only long-term CGM system, can deliver to people with diabetes, through the lens of Troy and his endocrinologist Dr. Rakesh Patel.*

"When Troy first came in to be treated, we used a regular glucometer before progressing onto a short-term continuous glucose monitoring system," Dr. Rakesh Patel said in the film series. "He had some grievances with the short-term sensors – mainly because they tend to fall off regularly and come with the burden of replacing the sensor every 10 to 14 days."

In the film, Troy said, "I'm constantly on the road driving for my job, so managing my diabetes has become a juggling act. When the long-term continuous glucose monitor came out, it was a game changer for me."

"We are very proud to bring the benefits of long-term CGM system to people with diabetes and are always humbled by the impact it can have on people's lives," said Elaine Anderson, VP of Global CGM and Commercial Operations, Ascensia Diabetes Care. "There is currently a lot to get excited about in the world of medical technology and we'd like to thank MedTech Europe for highlighting so many interesting perspectives in this film series."
