General description (provided by company)
The Guardian™ Connect application (app) is a component of the Guardian Connect Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system that helps you manage your diabetes by:
- Recording your glucose values throughout the day and night.
- Displaying your glucose values in a convenient and discrete manner using your mobile device.
- Alerting you to glucose events using your mobile device.
- Showing the effects that diet, exercise, and medication can have on your glucose levels.
- Giving you additional tools, such as alerts and the ability to record diet, exercise, and insulin intake, to help you prevent high and low glucose levels.
The Guardian™ Connect is designed for diabetic patients and allows to check the evolution of blood glucose levels by simply looking at your smartphone.
Guardian Connect allows Care Partners to remotely monitor your system data. It also allows you to send your Guardian Connect system data to the CareLink Personal website for daily uploads. This is done using an automatic feature called "Sync to CareLink".
This automatic Sync to CareLink feature sends data displayed in the app to the CareLink Connect tab of the CareLink Personal website. This data is sent approximately every five minutes when an Internet connection to the website is available. This feature also automatically sends sensor history information used to create CareLink reports approximately every 24 hours. This information can be viewed by you or a care partner on the CareLink Personal website at carelink.minimed.eu.
The CareLink Network engages multiple security methods to help customers comply with Global Data Protection Regulations such as “Health Insurance Reform: Security Standards” (HIPAA Security Rule) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Connectivity to sensors and platforms
CGM is a technology that lets you continuously view your sensor glucose values. The Guardian Connect system uses a glucose sensor, placed below your skin, to continuously measure the amount of glucose in your interstitial fluid. The Guardian Connect transmitter collects these glucose measurements, which are then converted to sensor glucose values. These sensor glucose values are then displayed on the Guardian Connect app. The Guardian Connect app can also provide alerts regarding your sensor glucose levels.
