“The first MPT product on the market is BlueStar by WellDoc. You cannot get it in all states. BlueStar is designed for adults 21 or older with type 2 diabetes who are not on an insulin pump and are not pregnant. Your doctor writes a prescription for the service. A pharmacy fills the prescription. Your doctor may prescribe BlueStar directly or may ask your doctor about getting started. Once prescribed, you will download the BlueStar application from your app store. After you download, you will use an access code to register and get started with quick in-product training.
To use the system, you enter information about your treatment plan. The automated system then tells you what to do. For example, if you enter a fasting BG value that is within target range, you will get a positive message that reinforces your treatment plan. BlueStar allows you to send your doctor a summary of your progress before your next visit. Your healthcare team uses the report to learn more about your diabetes and determine any changes to your treatment plan. BlueStar does not provide emergency help.”Source: http://bit.ly/1pV9yXAUsage:

“The Welldoc Diabetes Manager, “Bluestar” is the only app to receive clearance from the FDA for medical management of type 2 diabetes in adults. The Welldoc system allows patients to track and record their blood glucose levels and identifies trends in blood glucose patterns providing real-time, clinically based feedback and coaching for people living with diabetes. In addition, the app can share diabetes data directly with the healthcare team. Bluestar can be obtained only by a prescription from your doctor.”Source: http://bit.ly/1ZWnHGLUsage:
