    Does anyone else feel like the ideal mobile app would do exactly what the Telecare App does but with CGM data. The importance would be that your network of caregivers would have access to constant data – in the event that something went wrong and no one was there to help. A reading from a meter will do no good if a person is too low (or even high) to even be able to check it themselves…

    These are such great resources!

    I work for the organization Good Days from Chronic Disease Fund. I am searching blogs, community groups and organizations who may want to learn more about this program.

    We work with chronic disease patients to help them find the medical care they need at an affordable price. While we cannot take away the expenses completely, we try to lessen the burden as much as possible. Visit our website for more information on our efforts, and to learn what you can do to help us, help so many.

    Unfortunately I’d question the security of the PositiveID device.. These are the same people who wanted everyone to have a VeriChip implanted in their hand for access control… A little bit too big brother for my liking..

    To the person asking about CGM and Telcare…
    The Telcare platform (at least from what I understand talking to their people).. Has plans for applets that will do various things, Not CGM as of yet. but theres room for addons and expansion.. Though they seem to want to do most of that as an Iphone/Android app and not in the meter device itself, im thinking due to the FDA again…

    Fantastic write-up! Thanks for putting this overview together.

    At Telcare, we’re focusing on creating a complete eco-system. To us, this begins with creating a meter that makes it easy to export your data. There is no extra hardware to buy, software to download, or subscription fees. Of course, the data belongs to you (HIPAA compliant, as well).

    As I have previously done with Glucose Buddy, I’ll be the eyes and the ears on the ground for patients (myself a Type 1) in order to make the best possible product for people with diabetes.

    I have an open-door policy so feel free to shoot me an email with any questions or comments.

    VP, Telcare

    P.S. If you want me to inform you when the meter becomes available, go here:
