"Through targeted investments in companies focused in advancing cost-effective and cost-saving models of care, West Health can impact the cost of health care externally," said Nicholas J. Valeriani, chief executive of West Health. "These two innovative companies highlight the kinds of new approaches to diabetes treatment and medication adherence that have great potential to disrupt the current delivery model and lower the cost of health care."

San Diego-based GlySens is developing an implantable, long-term continuous glucose monitoring sensor designed to provide a wireless means to track glucose levels and improve the lives of people with diabetes. The sensor resides completely under the skin and transmits glucose measurements wirelessly to a convenient external display device, so patients may control their blood sugar levels more effectively. The American Diabetes Association reports that in the United States alone, diabetes and its complications are estimated to be responsible for more than $117 billion in direct medical costs.

Virginia-based RxAnte is a health care improvement company that provides a new and innovative approach for driving medication adherence by
