Web Connectivity Solution for the Management of Diabetes Data

Problem

A medical device manufacturer needed a web-based system to manage meter data from blood glucose meters and insulin pumps. The previous desktop application ran only on the Windows operating systems. The customer needed an updated system to allow centralized management of device data thereby allowing the patient, as well as the health care provider, access to the data.

  • The previous standalone desktop application served only patients using that machine
  • Application required CD installation for each release
  • Data was not centralized and did not provide doctors a view into the patients’ information
  • Meter data from the device could not transfer securely to the web
  • There was no OSX (Mac) solution

Solution

SEP built a desktop application that allows the user to upload device information to web. The application re-uses the device connectivity library that was being used in the desktop application. This library provides communication to the full suite of customer devices (> 20 devices). The new application also includes the communication layer responsible for uploading the device data to the web.

  • The connectivity library contains around 25 man-years of software that SEP was able to use for the OSX solution.
  • SEP was able to use Xamarin, which allowed the reuse of all Windows .NET C# code previously developed for the PC application.
  • The application was designed with the ability to upgrade via a web connection
  • The new application supports all the previously supported devices.
  • A Customized UI was designed to enhance the user experience during installation and device uploads

Result

SEP developed an application improving data transfer to the centralized management system giving patients an easier way to view their data and share with their healthcare provider. This application provides communications with any of the supported devices, as well as a connection to the web server where the information is eventually stored and managed.

  • The application works on both Windows and Mac operating systems
  • The application is downloadable from the web, eliminating the need and expense for CD installation
  • The patient can upload and view data from any PC or Mac with an internet connection
  • The solution supports 15+ languages
  • The system was tested using FDA compliant test processes
