San Diego-based Entra Health Systems has unveiled an enhanced version of the MyGlucoHealth Patient Portal for diabetic monitoring.

According to the company, the portal provides an easy-to-use interface for automatic collection and evaluation of test results from the MyGlucoHealth blood glucose meter. Readings can be interpreted and charted in different ways to analyze, evaluate and visually present patient data. Test information from the MyGlucoHealth meter is wirelessly transmitted to individual patient sites on the portal using a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone or PC, it says.

The newest version of the portal enables users to manage data on blood pressure, weight, nutrition, exercise and medication. It also features a scatter plot that charts blood sugar readings by time of day and a new timeline that displays all blood tests for a selected time period, touts Entra Health.
