Medtronic has launched CareLink Personal 5.4 Therapy Management Software for the Mac OS platform, following the US Food and Drug Administration approval.
CareLink Personal is a web-based program that helps people with diabetes to assess their glucose control through easy-to-read reports, charts and graphs.
The software analyzes data from the user’s insulin pump, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device and blood glucose meter to uncover trends and patterns in daily management that meters and logbooks alone cannot reveal.
Users simply upload their Medtronic insulin pump, CGM and meter data through an easy-to-use USB device.
The data is stored for easy viewing from any computer with internet access.
Over 35 meters are supported through CareLink Personal 5.4, including meters with that do not have Mac support through their meter manufacturer.
The CareLink platform also allows patients to authorize their healthcare providers to view their data by linking their CareLink Personal account to CareLink Pro, a provider version of the software.
