On World Diabetes Day, ALR Technologies announced that My Diabetes Home, an online diabetes management platform, is offering its registered users access to an ALRT-developed electronic logbook to track their blood glucose numbers. This electronic logbook will provide added convenience by allowing patients to upload their blood glucose results from their meter directly into an online spreadsheet. With this technology, patients no longer need to make individual test result entries manually. The uploaded data can be saved online, emailed or faxed to a provider, or printed and brought to a physician visit.
"Our electronic logbook offers a convenient option for patients who may be too busy to record their test results on a paper log, or who may feel more comfortable that an electronic transfer of their test results would provide for more accurate entries than if they made those entries themselves," said Larry Weinstein, President of ALRT. "And, our electronic logbook is compatible with 80 percent of the glucose meters on the U.S. market today and all the major brands."
Dr. Anuj Bhargava, the CEO and Founder of My Diabetes Home, said of the partnership, "Our goal at My Diabetes Home is to give patients the tools so that they can better manage their diabetes. For some patients, an electronic logbook is a convenient option that helps them achieve their goals and ALRT's technology is a high quality option for us to offer."
