Telcare’s Blood Glucose Monitoring System is the world’s first cellular-enabled FDA-cleared medical device. 28 million Americans have diabetes and must use blood glucose meters to manage their condition. They are required to maintain logs of multiple-times-a-day tests and bring the log to the doctor. With Telcare’s product, each time a person with diabetes tests blood sugar, the data are instantly communicated to Telcare’s secure cloud server and, from there to the doctors medical record. The user receives immediate feedback and clinical coaching right on the screen of the meter. For children and elderly people with diabetes, the data can be instantly transmitted to the cell phone of loved ones who are critical to maintaining safe control from day to day. The product is being brought to market at the same price points as legacy, disconnected blood glucose meters and test strips.

Telecare is the world’s first blood glucose meter to use the cellular network to transfer information from the device to the doctor’s office. After drawing blood from the fingertip and having the blood sugar analyzed, the Telecare device transmits the information via the wireless network to a web database where doctors and patients alike can easily monitor the results. Telecare’s device represents a huge step forward in management of this insidious disease and was recognized by the judges as being a breakthrough product for diabetics.
