Trividia Health: One-Stop Shop for People with Diabetes
Scott Verner, president and CEO
To have the power of data at your fingertips is one thing. Knowing how to use it is something else!
At a time when the entire healthcare industry is standing at an inflection point and witnessing the convergence of AI, machine learning, and predictive algorithms, the challenge for healthcare professionals, boils down to not only capturing and acquiring the data but also applying it in the learnings to drive positive outcomes for healthier patients. When it comes to diabetes management, both healthcare teams and patients are inundated with an enormous amount of information gathered from disparate sources. The information, which includes data on factors like healthy eating, exercise, insulin, diabetes medications and more, require consolidation in a single system to run it through advanced analytics and algorithms for revealing underlying trends and patterns.
This is where Trividia Health is in a class by itself. A Florida-based global medical device company, Trividia Health is initiating drastic transformation in this realm and channelizing the use of data to enhance the treatment for people with diabetes. By leveraging advanced technology, Trividia Health is laser-focused on connecting the triangle of stakeholders—patient, payer, and retailers—to enrich the data that practitioners use while delivering treatment to patients. On a mission to help people with diabetes maintain a healthy lifestyle, Trividia Health is committed to developing, manufacturing and marketing high quality and sophisticated portfolio of blood glucose monitoring supplies and technologies at an incredibly low cost. From blood glucose monitoring systems to skincare, the comprehensive suite of medical devices is supplied to retailers across North America and to a growing international audience.
“Several years ago, we had learned that reviewing data on the blood glucose meter is often difficult for both physicians and the patients as they had to recall what might have happened on a particular day two to three weeks back,” explains Scott Verner, president and CEO, Trividia Health. The company draws on its rich experience of over three decades to help both physicians and people with diabetes to maximize the potential of their healthcare data. To streamline the process of blood glucose monitoring and better utilization of the collected data, Trividia Health has developed its TRUE METRIX blood glucose monitoring system that provides the practitioners with a high number of event tags such as meal markers, exercise markers, wellness markers, and more, enabling efficient tracking of the patients’ health trends. The TRUE METRIX range of products also includes TRUE METRIX AIR Bluetooth meter that enables patients to share their data directly with their healthcare professionals. In addition, Trividia Health’s proprietary TRUEmanager Diabetes Management Software plays a vital role in taking the mystery out of the data sets using a three-pronged approach. By enabling data uploading, transmitting, and online recording on a logbook, TRUEmanager helps patients share their health trends with their loved ones and practitioners. Trividia Health’s soon-to-be-launched service will enable pharmacies and pharmacy clinics to work with a patient’s provider to better manage drug regiments taken by people with diabetes.
Having started its core business in manufacturing blood glucose meters and strips for diabetes management, Trividia Health has kept up with the technological advancements to develop a line of over 40 products in the past three decades.
The systems Trividia Health manufactures undergo a stringent quality control process from beginning to end
Besides TRUE METRIX and TRUEmanager, Trividia Health has an extensive sharps portfolio, which includes lancing devices for drawing blood, insulin syringes, pen needles, and more. The company also has a full nutrition portfolio and a range of skincare products for people with diabetes. Its sophisticated medical devices not only ensure advanced data use but are affordable, user-friendly, and assure great compatibility and portability of data to enhance communication. Talking about its products’ quality assurance and FDA-clearance, Annmarie Ramos, senior manager, product marketing, Trividia Health, says, “The systems Trividia Health manufactures undergo a stringent quality control process from beginning to end. The products that we presented for the 510 (k) approval are the same products that we manufacture today.”

Today, the U.S. alone has over two and a half million active patients using Trividia Health’s products. Unlike its competitors, Trividia Health has a separate facility in New Hampshire that focuses on producing nutrition and skincare products specific to people with diabetes. The story behind Trividia Health’s collaboration with this 180-year-old factory is also quite interesting. Years ago, Trividia Health noticed patients eating unhealthy foods to keep episodic lows in check but overlooked their severe after-effect. To end this surging harmful trend, Trividia Health decided to acquire the century-old nutrition company. Post collaboration, Trividia Health’s marketing team found that the existing nutrition products’ taste, color, and texture were unpleasant to consumers compared to candies, colas and sugary juices. As a result, Trividia suggested the formulation specialists improve the texture and add fresh flavors to the product offerings. Aside from selling these products under the TRUEplus brand, they also began packaging the products and started promoting them through leading retailers like Walgreens, Walmart, and CVS. The transformation led to a tremendous boost in sales of the products.
Trividia Health continues to build an extensive partnership with top-notch retailers to expand further into global markets. In fact, in the emerging segment of non-invasive diagnostics, the company has already introduced a new product for eye screening in the Asian market. The device provides fast, convenient screening for Healthcare Professionals to evaluate a patient’s health by scanning for the formation of advanced glycated end products (AGEs) in the eye. Trividia Health has also developed a vast educational program for people with diabetes. Its “Meet Lance” educational materials enable patients, newly diagnosed with diabetes, to understand the journey of a person with diabetes. From eating habits to exercising, understanding ones’ emotional health, the educational materials provide an overview of the comorbidities associated with diabetes and the processes and practices to address the issues.
In addition to helping humans with innovative solutions, Trividia Health has also entered the pet diabetes market with the launch of a new connected health platform in 2020. In the future, apart from reports for managing blood glucose levels, Trividia Health’s innovative solutions will also deliver additional health reports from a drop of blood.
