FTNW: Bluetooth BG & Nokia

From MobiHealthNews:

Nokia has teamed up with Entra Health Systems to release a similar app that works with a Bluetooth-enabled glucose meter and on more than 50 Nokia phones.
Officially, Nokia has inked a deal with Entra Health Systems to include Entra’s MyGlucoHealth app in the Nokia Ovi Store, but the app enables users to transmit blood glucose testing results from a MyGlucoHealth Wireless meter through the user’s mobile phone to a personal health record. Here’s the official description from the Ovi Store:

“The MyGlucoHealth Mobile diabetes management system permits blood glucose testing results on the MyGlucoHealth Wireless meter to be transmitted from your mobile phone to your personal health record portal using Bluetooth technology. Patients can also review their most recent blood sugar test results, view line charts, pie charts and histograms, as well as enter, fitness, weight, exercise and nutritional data.”

  1. Considering a significant number of Nokia employees have type 1 (Finland has the highest incidence anywhere -- I should know, I lived there in 1987, and Nokia is based there), I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner. Too bad Nokia's market share in the U.S. is so small; it would be better if Samsung signed a similar deal!
