Canada-based wireless provider Rogers Communications has agreed to provide PositiveID with machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless data and mobile connectivity management services to enable the communication of a diabetes patient's glucose readings from PositiveID's mobile health solution - iglucose.

PositiveID’s iglucose system provides next generation data to facilitate diabetes management by helping ensure patient compliance and data accuracy, and aiding in insurance reimbursement.

The iglucose system automatically creates logs and journals which are an important assessment of an individual’s response to their diabetes care plan.

PositiveID chairman and CEO Scott Silverman said the transaction will position the companies to provide a complete, consistent solution for people living with diabetes.

"As we launch the innovative iglucose service, we will have a technology platform in place capable of handling our business as it grows throughout Canada," Silverman said.
