Insulet Partners with Joslin Diabetes Center to Implement a Unique Training Certification for Insulet’s Clinical Team

Thursday, June 30, 2016

BILLERICA, Mass.-- Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) (Insulet or the Company), the leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its Omnipod® Insulin Management System, today announced that almost 100 members of Insulet’s North American clinical team have completed a customized certification program designed and led by the Joslin Diabetes Center for Insulet. The Advanced Diabetes Educator in Pump Therapy (ADEPT™) certification provides Insulet’s clinical team with customized, advanced training to deliver enhanced support for individuals who are managing their diabetes using continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy. The Company’s partnership with Joslin will enable Insulet’s clinical team to provide unparalleled training and support for healthcare practitioners and their Omnipod patients.

Insulet is the only company to provide this advanced training and certification to its highly-credentialed clinicians. The ADEPT certification is awarded to clinical team members who successfully complete a two-day training program led by top clinicians at Joslin and who are enrolled in the ongoing Joslin educational program.

“We are proud to announce the ADEPT certification of our clinical team through our partnership with the Joslin Diabetes Center, which reflects just one of the many initiatives we are implementing to ensure we deliver the highest level of resources and support to our Podders and healthcare providers,” said Shacey Petrovic, President, Insulet Diabetes Products. “In today’s environment, we recognize healthcare practitioners face significant time and resource challenges. Our clinical team members help offset this burden by applying their advanced training in areas such as patient onboarding with Omnipod and advanced pattern management, becoming a true clinical partner to our customers.”

Dr. Robert Gabbay, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Joslin stated, “We are proud to partner with Insulet on this important educational initiative, which will benefit patients and clinicians alike. Consistent blood glucose control and related technology proficiency can be challenging to master, and this educational endeavor will help ensure the Omnipod clinical team will provide the advanced support needed so patients can become successful at both.”

Additional information on the program will be available at the American Diabetes Association’s 76th Scientific Sessions in New Orleans, La., from June 10 to 14. Please visit Insulet’s booth at location 1301 in the Morial Convention Center to learn more. The Company also plans to evaluate and share outcomes associated with the certification program in the future.
