Diabetes management is one of the foremost areas where telehealth has been able to have a significant impact. In the past few years, technological advances have produced a range of tools and gadgets designed to simplify and improve the care of people with diabetes. One of the tools that’s really making a difference is the USB glucose meter. While it falls short of providing real-time, continuous remote monitoring, the USB glucose meter is revolutionizing diabetes management by making it easier and more effective. Patients gain independence and security because they’re able to quickly and easily track results, share them with healthcare providers, and go about their lives. And beyond that, USB glucose meters are easy to set up and use, so the early adoption rate has been high.
Several models are currently on the market from major players, such as Bayer and Cardiocom, and more are expected to hit the market later this year.
