TO EVERYBODY IT MAY CONCERN:
Someone wrote to me this morning about my experiences with the new pump and if I would suggest it to them.
after a short time, I realized i haven't been on it long enough to know much but what i did realize is that it would be really really useful to build a database of likes and dislikes, good and bad by everybody we have on board.
I am even more interested in the "should not have" "fails at" and "needs to have" columns than I am in which pump has or hasn't got it yet, as one of my aims is to produce as close to a list of "things pumpers really really
a) need; b) want; c) can't stand; d) must have; e) must never have (again).
I'd appreciate the same for any meters and/or continuous system you are or have used.
Also feel free to write anything related to pumping you want to say
Not sure how long will let this run; my guess is about two weeks at which time I am going to database and construct what I hope will be a useful functional specification for the insulin pump of choice.
My next task will be matching this to current pumps and seeing who we can get interested in implementing this list. If possible, would love to get IP in as part of this design process (that means you Michael) and maybe get some credit for organization as well (without which the list would not exist and without support of which the contents of said list will not be released)
PLEASE respond to ME with your answers leaving the subject as it is. it will be far easier for me to move those emails into their own "home" and then deal with them once collected and archived.
Looking forward to the day when we can laugh at these efforts to fix a product over 30 years in the "making"…
