FDA Gives Scientists Room to Innovate

 

George Mason University – I wrote this dissertation ‘The Convergence of Man and Machine’ … wow!! my work today makes that writing feel like a NOSTRADOMUS TABLET!! #EggheadMode

Last month the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that the new generation of medical technology is here.  Several medical technology companies have won FDA approval for self-monitoring health devices.

Palo Alto, Calif.-based Glooko has laid the foundation with its MeterSync technology.  One simple dynamic cable has made it possible for many companies to cost-effectively provide monitoring peripherals for your current smartphone. Glooko’s MeterSync technology translates output from medical devices to a binary format to be interpreted by the mobile application as it sees fit.  This is a great feature that allows you to export and email the collected data on a .CVS file that you can open in Excel or Numbers and keep for your records or share with your doctor before your appointment so he can have a good idea of how are you are keeping diabetes controlled.  We are one step away from having a “physician in the pocket” scenario for all American citizens.

When I team up with my XULA genius doctor buddies, we will “do-away” with paper logbooks and manually entering your BG values into a diabetes app!  I am filled with pounds of respect for the Glooko team that accomplished the most important task of laying a foundation of universal compatibility.  As a result, the next generation of medical technology has a fighting chance of eliminating the obstacles involved in keeping patient, doctor, and assisting health entities coordinated with centralized, compatible, real-time health data.

The Glooko MeterSync Cable is compatible with the following meters:

  • ACCU-CHEK® Aviva* (Black)
  • ACCU-CHEK® Compact Plus* (Black)
  • ACCU-CHEK® Nano
  • Bayer’s BREEZE® 2

The FDA’s decision has put a lot of power in the hands of seasoned software developers to regentrify the quality of American healthcare with sheer intelligence.  I look forward to announcing ML Admin’s installment into this genius pool in the form of LogicHealth(dot)org; coming soon.
