About Us

Danatech, powered by ADCES, was created to address the rapidly evolving diabetes technology landscape. We support the learning and assessment needs of healthcare professionals with up-to-date product information, device training, professional education and more.

As the number of people living with diabetes surpasses 537 million globally, collaboration is critical. We partner with like-minded industry professionals, manufacturers, thought-leaders, non-profits and others who share our vision of optimal health and quality of life for everyone affected by diabetes. Because none of us is as smart as all of us.
