LAS VEGAS - Jan. 7, 2014 - PRLog -- Telcare, Inc. received an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Award for health and fitness from the Consumer Electronics Association for its Blood Glucose Monitoring System powered by the Verizon network. The Consumer Electronics Association sponsors this annual award to honor consumer technology manufacturers and developers.

Telcare’s Blood Glucose Monitoring System is a revolutionary diabetes management system that transmits glucose values instantly to a secure server where patients and their physicians can easily access the information. Automated and doctor-directed guidance is simultaneously displayed on the meter, on patients’ and their loved ones’ phones, and on a secure patient portal. The data from Telcare’s meter can also go directly to the medical records of any doctor that the patient selects.

“It is a great honor to be recognized by CES as a leading technology in health and fitness,” said Dr. Jonathan Javitt, CEO of Telcare and inventor of the product. “More than 30 million Americans suffer from diabetes, and with more being diagnosed every day, healthcare costs for patients and employers are rising. Telcare’s innovative product has the potential to change the way patients and physicians view and manage this chronic condition.”

The Innovations Awards have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. Products chosen as an Innovations honoree reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.

Telcare’s blood glucose monitoring solution is on display this week at the 2014 International CES in the Las Vegas Convention Center until January 10, 2014 in booth 25930.
