In 2006, a group of engineers recognized the need for new and improved methods of pumping insulin and incorporated as Phluid, Inc. In 2007, Kim Blickenstaff joined the organization as President and CEO, bringing his philosophy of using market research as the inspiration for product development and started on the development of the t:slim Insulin Pump. In 2008, this predecessor company became the newly incorporated Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. that was formed with a focus on promoting a comprehensive, user-centric, and integrated approach to diabetes product development and customer care.Â Tandem Diabetes Care felt that incorporating enhanced ease of use and attractive designÂ—often associated with consumer electronics developmentÂ—would also encourage more patients to consider the clinical benefits of insulin pump therapy. Tandem Diabetes Care interviewed more than 4,000 insulin pump users and health care providers to design its first device, the t:slim Insulin Pump.
