Telcare, Inc. recently unveiled its new MyTelcare Diabetes Pal, now available for free on the Apple App Store. Telcare is offering people with diabetes and their caregivers an iPhone app that automatically synchronizes with a wireless glucose meter.
In January, Telcare BGM™ (glucose meter) introduced the industry’s first FDA-cleared, cellular-enabled blood glucose meter. The new MyTelcare Diabetes Pal App allows patients and caregivers to use their iPhone to visualize every glucose reading sent by the Telcare BGM™ while tracking medication, nutrition, activities, and notes. The app also enables patients who don’t have the Telcare BGM to manually enter their blood glucose data and track it over time. Patients and caregivers receive feedback from Telcare’s proprietary rules-based algorithms and the entire Telcare patient community.
