    We also need STANDARDS for data and such. I love that I can download my Dexcom data to the computer, but I can’t export it to Excel or XML? Come on guys none of you have the best solutions for all aspects, let someone else play too.

    We hope that now all want to be involved in the medical system is improved, but not because they think the medical system is very much less come to trust that these events will reduce the cost and benefit millions of people throughout the country, and they say that things in improved from 60% in recent weeks, hopefully this is the case ..

    A few years ago there was a device called the InDuo which combined a one touch meter and a novolog pen. It was pretty nifty and I used it before starting with a pump. I believe they discontinued it due to a lack of demand. Go figure…

    Being a technology lover myself, it sounds great to me if we could have a single device that did everything we need.

    The reality however, is that integration of technologies is quite hard, specially when produced by different companies. I’m not talking about the technical feasibility, but more about the business and political aspects of the process.

    Isn’t it odd that after a few years of “working on it” we still have only one integrated pumpo with cgms? Coincidence, I don’t think so, but I hope the industry proves me wrong.

    Great blog Amy, keep it up!

    It is my firm belief that we do not need an “All-In-One” device, but an All-in-One SYSTEM. With wireless technology, finding the right devices that can all accurately and seamlessly communicate together would vastly improve the quality of all our lives. Although being able to carry but one device would be great, it limits our choices on individual components.

    An “All-in-One” system would need to be an open platform for the same reason. No proprietary parts, all ‘off-the=shelf’ standards would allow for any device and help keep diabetic tools cost effective. Just my view….

    Hey Amy, the One touch Ping also combines the pump controller and glucose meter into one device. Too bad the lancer and test strips are still separate! I developed a fancy connector to keep all 3 pieces together; it’s called a “rubber band”
