Program description
I am raising awareness of sensor use, to replace finger stick blood sugar monitoring, both for the ease of use by my patients, and the greater quantity/quality of data that I receive. This can in turn be data that is cloud based and secure, and therefore requires little effort on part of the patients, with no downloading/internet required on their part. Data can be entered into EMR to be shared by all caregivers.
