A Mobile Phone Based Tele-Monitoring System For Chronic Disease Management | Centre for Global eHealth Innovation: "Bluetooth-enabled medical devices (BP monitor 2 and glucometer) were used to transmit data to a mobile phone. A custom application running on the mobile phone acts as a personal medical diary of the patient’s test history. The application relays data securely back to a central data repository where clinical rules are applied and alerts generated. These alerts are sent to the patient’s physician by fax (in the absence of any other electronic means of communication) and to the patient by automated text and phone messages. The system is designed to remind patients by text and voice message to take their home readings if they fail to adhere to the prescribed schedule."
