If you are currently using multiple devises to manage your diabetes, here is your chance to tell the FDA how you would like to see your different devises communicate with each other. Your meter can talk to your computer or your CGM can speak to your pump. The idea is to get all the device makers to use a common communication system so they will be interchangeable.
If this sounds like something you would like to speak up about, pros and cons, the opportunity is now. The open comments will close March 26, 2016.
"This document will be key for all diabetes devices and their associated communications (e.g., pump talking to a phone, CGM and pump talking to each other, meter sending data to a computer and electronic medical record), and we’ll be interested to see how patients, clinicians, and industry respond. Again, the comment period closes March 26, and FDA does take the comments it receives seriously. Please find the draft guidance here, and comment here if you have thoughts on the document!
