The DayLink® Monitor records a participant's weight or blood glucose values together with answers to preprogrammed questions regarding symptoms of the chronic condition Alere is monitoring.
This proprietary biometric measurement device provides critical, actionable data on a daily basis to Alere clinicians.
The participant's health information is sent daily via a phone line or wireless connection to Alere's clinicians. This allows them to provide immediate guidance and/or alert the participant's physician if the symptoms require immediate attention.
Typically, the monitor is used for higher-acuity participants in our Heart Failure, Diabetes and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) programs. It is hooked up to separate devices used to measure or monitor symptoms relevant to the condition, including weight scales for heart failure and glucometers for diabetes. In the COPD program, only the DayLink Monitor is used.
