Online enrollment takes only a few minutes and once enrolled, setup is easy. Simply connect the iglucose device to a compatible, data capable glucometer and levels are automatically sent to the secure iglucose database. The iglucose system was designed to be compatible with a wide range of FDA-cleared blood glucose meters including Johnson & Johnson LifeScan(R), Abbott FreeStyle(R), Nipro Diagnostic(TM) True(TM) and Bayer Contour(R) monitoring systems. iglucose will collect and transmit data from any of these devices to a secure database using wireless technology.

“The response to iglucose from our customers and prospects is overwhelming,” claims Scott Griffin, Chief Operating Officer of Merge-MD, a company that believes electronic health records should follow the patient in real-time. By making important data so easily accessible, healthcare providers can make faster, safer choices for patients.
