Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 7, 2009
MyCareTeam, Inc., a leading vendor of Internet-based diabetes management software, has announced its participation in IBM's technology booth at the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference & Exhibition in Chicago, April 4th- April 8th.
Viewers of MyCareTeam's demonstrations can expect to get a glimpse of the features of its flagship diabetes monitoring software product, MCT-Diabetes, and how it easily integrates with leading health and standards initiatives such as Google Health and Continua through IBM sensor event platform software.
"We believe that MCT-Diabetes is a great example of the type of disease management application that is well suited for integration with IBM's sensor event platform software," said John Krachenfels, Global Solutions Executive, IBM Healthcare & Life Sciences Sensor Solutions. "MyCareTeam's innovative approach to monitoring diabetes electronically, combined with its adherence to leading industry standards, results in a software solution that is well-suited for all of our users who suffer from diabetes."
"We are very pleased to be exhibiting our diabetes software with IBM at the Chicago HIMSS conference this year," said Jim Mingle, CEO of MyCareTeam. "We are looking forward to demonstrating the powerful capabilities of our diabetes software and our integration with leading industry health initiatives, including Google Health, and Continua's Version One standards."
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.
