MyGlucoHealth Uses Bluetooth Technology To Upload And Manage Blood Glucose Testing Using A Mobile Phone Or PC
April 27, 2009 – Las Vegas, Nevada — Entra Health Systems, an international applied healthcare technology company today demonstrated the MyGlucoHealth integrated wireless telehealth platform at the American Telemedicine Association Conference in Las Vegas. MyGlucoHealth is the first FDA cleared and CE certified Bluetooth®-enabled blood glucose meter of its kind in the world. The Bluetooth communication built-in to every MyGlucoHealth meter securely connects patients to a real-time online network to upload and evaluate their blood sugar readings using a mobile phone or PC.
“MyGlucoHealth is an integrated wireless telehealth solution that helps patients gain direct control over their care, while providing clear lines of communication between their clinicians and caregivers,” said Richard Strobridge, Chief Executive Officer of Entra Health Systems. “The MyGlucoHealth alerting system allows patients to automatically notify family, caregivers or diabetic care specialists by email or SMS text message about their changing condition or to remind them to test. MyGlucoHealth provides greater data transparency for both the patient and the clinician to help clarify and define treatment strategies and improve overall patient care.”
Using the secure Physician’s Portal, clinicians have access to a detailed dashboard of patient testing data that is updated each time the user uploads. The clinician can establish individual or global alert settings to flag patient records when blood test readings, testing frequency or target averages fall outside of defined levels. Underlying test data is immediately available to the clinician for review in detail. The messaging feature of the Physician’s Portal enables patients and clinicians to securely send and receive communications back and forth about patient condition, testing results and medication options.
MyGlucoHealth is the first FDA cleared and CE certified Bluetooth® blood glucose meter. The MyGlucoHealth meter works in combination with a real-time online network to upload and manage blood sugar readings using a mobile phone or PC. MyGlucoHealth eliminates the need for patients to maintain personal logbooks, improving data accuracy and removing the opportunity for incomplete or ‘manufactured’ readings.
Using the MyGlucoHealth Portal at www.myglucohealth.net, or regional sites throughout the world, patients securely transmit and evaluate their daily readings while communicating those same results to their families, caregiver or physician. MyGlucoHealth monitors a patient’s day-to-day condition, while continually informing and motivating patients to follow a routine that leads to a healthier lifestyle.
