Glooko Announces new CEO & FDA Clearance for Products, including New Glooko Logbook Charts

PALO ALTO, Calif. – January 17, 2013 – Glooko, Inc., makers of an innovative mobile logbook solution for people with diabetes, today announces the hiring of Rick Altinger as CEO and Dean Lucas as vice president of product development. In addition to growing its team, the company received FDA 510(k) over-the-counter clearance for its products and launches Glooko Logbook Charts to allow people with diabetes to analyze blood glucose readings through visual graphs.
Rick Altinger will serve as Glooko’s first CEO, and brings over 15 years of industry experience in healthcare information technologies. While an executive at Intuit Health, Altinger helped launch the healthcare division’s provider services and drove Intuit’s acquisition of Medfusion in 2010. He also spearheaded Intuit Health’s growth as the leading supplier of patient-provider communication and patient portal services. His technical knowledge and expertise is central to Glooko’s diabetes healthcare platform and its goal of allowing anyone to monitor blood glucose levels regardless of meter or mobile device type. Altinger fills the CEO role held previously on an interim basis by Glooko co-founder and chairman Yogen Dalal.

“Lack of support across multiple meter types and differing data transfer methods have long withheld a truly unified diabetes management solution,” said Glooko CEO Rick Altinger. “Glooko has cracked this code and created a universal diabetes management platform, and I look forward to continued innovation and implementation of Glooko across healthcare as a unifying force in a disjointed ecosystem.”
