Diabetes and Health Tracker for BlackBerry with iRecordit

13 Comments

We’ve had several users comment/write-in inquiring about a good diabetes app and recently iRecordit has launched their BlackBerry app for tracking blood sugar. iRecordit asks the user to input certain data about their blood sugar and general health, and allows the user access to the visual representation of that data on their BlackBerry or via email to their PC or health care provider. This visual representation allows you to have a daily view of your glucose levels.

What’s missing from apps such as iRecordit is Bluetooth integration with an insulin monitor. I would like to see iRecordit partner with some large healthcare institutions to bring this sort of functionality because automating and avoiding data input will make this app even better and more effective.

Head over to iRecordit.net from your BlackBerry browser or desktop to get a free OTA trial of iRecordit.

Patient-tracking app joins ISV

Comment

StethoscopeWe’ve got yet another addition to the BlackBerry Independent Software Vendor Alliance… today it’s Confidant, who make an app for mobiles which monitors, transmits and stores data relating to chronic disease, collected wirelessly from medical devices. Diabetes and obesity are their primary targets right now, with asthma and prescription dosage monitoring in the works, but it’s easy to see the far-reaching medical applications of this kind of platform. Confidant doesn’t just track and store information for the sake of making caregivers’ lives easier, but it also gives visualizations and feedback on health status so patients can see how they’re doing themselves. If that study looking at exactly this kind of patient care pans out, Confidant will have some good, hard numbers to back up their software.
