We are thrilled to launch the latest version of MCT-Diabetes
Acton, MA (PRWEB) March 11, 2009
MyCareTeam, Inc., a leading vendor of Internet-based diabetes management software, has announced the immediate release of the newest version of its diabetes management software, MCT-Diabetes.
MCT-Diabetes has increased its meters supported to include the popular ReliOn and TRUEtrack (Home Diagnostics and Walgreens, CVS and Rite-Aid co-brands) meters. In response to user requests, MyCareTeam has also extended the overall capabilities of MCT-Diabetes to include the ability to manually enter blood glucose readings and track vital signs information. For example, users can manually enter systolic and diastolic blood pressure, weight, body mass index (BMI), pulse rate, and respiratory information. In addition, MCT-Diabetes now has a sleek new user interface designed to make it even easier to navigate through the software.
"We are thrilled to launch the latest version of MCT-Diabetes", said Jim Mingle, CEO of MyCareTeam. "We believe that our software more than satisfies the needs of our users. In addition to being able to enter blood glucose readings manually or automatically upload from the majority of the glucose meters on the market, our users can now easily manage other data pertinent to diabetes in one place, including insulin, carbohydrates, diet, exercise, and other vitals information."
MCT-Diabetes is a tool that allows individuals with diabetes and their care providers to monitor glucose levels across the Internet. The product facilitates collaboration, which improves the long-term management of diabetes. The intuitive, easy-to-use service allows users to decide who (care providers, medical staff, family members, and friends) can have access to their data and with whom they communicate. Users who do not wish to share access with care providers can print reports and graphs and take them to appointments for review.
MCT-Diabetes has also been recently updated to allow users to store meals in a "Meal Log", build an "Insulin Log" and use "TotalView", a state-of-the-art charting tool, to analyze related factors affecting blood sugar levels. In addition, MCT-Diabetes accepts meal nutrition information (carbohydrates, fats, protein, and fiber), exercise, and insulin dosage obtained via manual entry or automatic upload.
The interactive charting component, TotalView, gives users and medical staff a comprehensive view of all diabetes-related data and assists in the visualization of the various factors that impact blood glucose levels. In essence, it is a dashboard to all of the important information needed to control diabetes. It enables the user to easily chart blood glucose readings, medications, meals, exercise and insulin usage giving an overall picture of how each item affects blood glucose readings.
MCT-Diabetes is available directly from MyCareTeam on a monthly or annual subscription membership basis. Visit the company's website at http://www.mycareteam.com for more information.
