ALR Technologies has announced today that its blood glucose data extraction and upload software can now be used with the Mac OSX 10.7 and newer Operating Systems. Patients can now install ALRT’s software onto their MAC’s, upload the blood glucose data from their meters, and have their data trends tracked online by ALRT’s Diabetes Care Facilitators. The data is also accessible by other members of a patient’s care team.
Mac compatibility signifies a major opportunity for many Mac-using patients with diabetes since monitoring software for some of the major glucose maters brands is compatible with only Windows-based computers. The ALRT Mac-compatible software will now be an option for patients with meter brands such as LifeScan, Nipro, Bayer, Abbott and Roche.
ALR Technologies CEO Sidney Chan stated, “There is universal agreement that patients and their care teams need to make better use of the valuable data stored in their glucose meters. We hope that ALRT has provided a valuable service by making it possible for Mac users to utilize their computers in the management of diabetes.”
ALR Technologies is a medical device company that offers remote monitoring and care facilitation for patients with chronic diseases. ALRT has developed the FDA-cleared and HIPAA compliant Health-e-Connect System that collects data from blood glucose meters and uploads to a secure website. Trained facilitators use the System to provide efficient care among patients, improve outcomes, and meet diabetes goals. Currently, the company is focused on diabetes and will expand its services to cover other chronic diseases rooted in verifiable data.
