Telcare blood glucose system aims for wireless diabetes management
Telcare is a Bethesda, Maryland firm that has developed blood glucose monitoring technology that combines a glucose meter with wireless connectivity to Telcare's cloud server. The package is designed to keep an open two-way communication between a patient and an ecosystem of caregivers that may include the doctor, diabetes nurse educators, and family members. With this system, results are shared with the cloud with each reading and the patient receives feedback and guidance that may be automated or may trigger a demand for specific caregiver advice. The system has completed its initial clinical trials and is in the FDA clearance process.
