New Mobile Health Solution
Confidant Systems' new wireless diabetes management system enables blood sugar level readings to be conveniently transmitted over the cell phone network and then have them stored and managed by healthcare providers through the company's web-enabled diabetes management software. Such systems today are called Mobile Health or mHealth solutions. The system can readily collect and then transmit blood sugar readings from most any of the glucose meters available in the US market today.
Confidant's new 3.0 System consists of the Confidant 3.0 Connector device, Confidant 3.0 software application and the Confidant 3.0 PC interface module as noted in the diagram below. The hardware enables the transmission of blood sugar readings from glucometers via any GSM cellular network. The software application stores and manages patients' data. The PC-interface module enables patients' data to be graphically viewed on computers or PDAs connected through the Internet. Upon receipt of newly submitted patient data, Confidant Systems' server software generates and sends feedback messages directly to the patient, via cell-phone or personal computer. The feedback messages are selected by the system based on the patient's currently submitted and historical data.
Through this wireless diabetes management solution, healthcare professionals have the ability to remotely review and better manage patient's blood sugar levels as well as set thresholds to flag readings, according to specific blood sugar levels. In addition, the system has the ability to contact patients via text or email. The solution also enables patients to login and create personal accounts via the Internet as well as to allow them to select which Personal Health Record (PHR) or Electronic Health Record (EMR) system they would like to store their data within or outside of the Confidant system.
Some of the advantages of using this diabetes management tool, over current practices of collecting patients' blood sugar data, include:
