"Seems like a no-brainer to have a pump or CGM or standard glucometer be bluetooth enabled for realtime transmission of data to a cloudbased database via iPhone/Android. Push notifications could keep parents in the loop."

"True...real-time may not be so important for MD interactions. But it seems like it would be nice, and possibly useful to have some sort of uplink to a mobile device, and I'm not sure why it couldn't be real-time. A mobile app could make a…"

Device Communications

My son uses a Medtronic CGM and pump and a Onetouch Ultralink. I'm interested in knowing if anyone knows about efforts to make these devices communicate more efficiently with, say, a smartphone.Is there any system out there that uses Bluetooth or another wireless platform to link CGM, pump, and glucometer in real-time to a database accessible to the user and his/her doctor via mobile device?Or is anyone aware of efforts to make this happen?See More
