Carelink Personal




CareLink® Personal Software differs from CareLink® Pro, in that it does not contain the adherence notes and suggestions indicated only for healthcare professionals. It’s a secure, web-based therapy management software that allows your patients to:

  • Upload data from their insulin pump, CGM device, and blood glucose meter into a free, web-based program
  • See detailed reports to help them better understand their glucose control and uncover patterns missed by meters and logbooks alone
  • Easily store their information and allow a healthcare professional access to it via CareLink Pro® Software

Protecting patient privacy with the highest security measures

Your patients' privacy and protection of their personal information is, of course, our topmost priority. CareLink® Personal Software complies with the strictest privacy regulations included in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) guidelines. The system also uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, a data encryption method that helps ensure that patient information remains unreadable during the transfer. Storing data in CareLink® Personal Software is often safer than storing it on a home computer system that is connected to the Internet. We use a three-tier architecture that secures the data behind three separate firewalls.
