Log Blood Glucose Levels

The GDm-Health system comprises a smartphone App which connects to a wireless blood glucose (BG) meter using Bluetooth or NFC (Near Field Communication). A woman’s measurements along with any text-based commentary she wishes to log, or request for call back is then transmitted directly to a clinical dashboard for the multi-disciplinary team to proactively manage.

In Partnership with

“Feedback from women using GDm-Health has been very positive. They like to know that their condition is being monitored, and appreciate the immediate feedback when their condition requires intervention from a clinician. It is particularly beneficial to women whose first language is not English, or who struggle with literacy. Being able to use an app rather than a handwritten log book and emails suits the current pregnant population – the millennial, but is very easy for everyone to use.”
