BETHESDA, Md. — A provider of mobile health solutions has introduced a free application that synchronizes with a wireless blood-glucose meter.
The MyTelcare Diabetes Pal, now available via the Apple App Store, allows patients and caregivers to use their iPhone, iPod Touch and/or iPad to visualize every glucose reading sent by the Telcare BGM (blood-glucose meter) while tracking medication, nutrition, activities and notes. What's more, the app also enables patients who don’t have the Telcare BGM to manually enter their blood-glucose data and track it over time.
“Telcare’s free app is designed to empower every patient by eliminating the hurdles that have made the analysis of glucose readings so time consuming,” Telcare CEO Jonathan Javitt said. “We want to increase patients’ understanding of their diabetes and help them and their caregivers properly manage the disease. The support of endocrinologists and diabetes educators around the world verifies the need for this application. We believe this app’s innovative and intuitive design will help people with diabetes change behavior and as a result improve their health.”
