Internet diabetes monitoring

12th March 2008

The Royal Bournemouth Hospital in Dorset is to become the first in the UK to allow people with diabetes to monitor their blood sugar levels remotely.

It is planning to install equipment that will allow patients to carry out tests in their own homes and then send the data back over the internet to clinicians, who will be available around the clock to offer advice where necessary. The aim is to reduce the number of patient visits to the hospital.
