Aerotel Medical Systems is taking part in Georgetown University's diabetes research project on Native Americans

Tel Aviv 05 September 2006Aerotel Medical Systems, a manufacturer of cutting-edge diagnostic telemedicine systems, is playing an important role in a diabetes research project conducted by the eHealth and Telemedicine Division of the Imaging Science and Information Systems Center at Washington DC's Georgetown University. The study is being conducted in multiple Native American communities across the United States including Alabama, Idaho and Hawaii. It involves diabetic patients using Aerotel's TeleCliniQ modem for transmitting blood glucose readings to the MyCareTeam diabetes management database at the university.


"TeleCliniQ modems enable a fast, simple, direct and accurate method for sending blood glucose readings to a centralized database", explained Betty Levine, who heads the university's eHealth and Telemedicine Division.

Once the readings have been transmitted, patients and health care providers can access them over the web via the MyCareTeam Internet-based diabetes management application developed by the University for analysing blood sugar readings and identifying blood glucose control issues.

"Aerotel's TeleCliniQ modems are effective even for those without immediate access to a computer or the Internet. Its readings are essential if health care givers are to create a change in a diabetic patient's regimen and improve his/her glucose control", noted Betty Levine.
