One Drop, a company known for its iPhone-connected One Drop Blood Glucose Monitor, today announced the launch of a new Personal Diabetes Assistant and integration with the Health Records feature on iPhone.
The One Drop Personal Diabetes Assistant is designed to encourage One Drop users to better adhere to medication times, eating plans, and blood glucose monitoring.
Users can get regular reminders for blood glucose checks, medication doses, meals, physical activities, weigh-ins, and blood pressure measurements, with the app providing a daily personalized schedule based on each person's needs and a progress chart towards health goals.
With the Health Records integration, One Drop users at participating healthcare institutions are able to access medical records in the Health app alongside their One Drop info for a better overview of total health.
One Drop users who are subscribed to the company's One Drop Experts service can share electronic medical records with their personal diabetes coach, giving coaches access to vitals, labs, and medication history for better diabetes management recommendations.
For those unfamiliar with One Drop, the company makes an affordable Bluetooth-connected blood glucose monitoring device, a lancing device, and a subscription service for lancets and glucose strips. Apple offers the One Drop Blood Glucose Monitoring Kit online for $70.
