  • Patent number: 10237389
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods are disclosed for wireless communication of analyte data. One such method includes, during a first interval, establishing a first connection between an analyte sensor system and a display device. During the first connection, the method includes exchanging information related to authentication between the analyte sensor system and the display device. The method includes making a determination regarding whether authentication was performed during the first interval. During a second interval, the method may include establishing a second connection between the analyte sensor system and the display device for transmission of an encrypted analyte value, and bypassing the exchanging of information related to authentication performed during the first connection.

  • Patent number: 10226205
    Abstract: Systems and methods for a continuous monitoring of analyte values received from an analyte sensor system are provided. One method for a wireless data communication between an analyte sensor system and a mobile device involves storing identification information associated with a transceiver of the analyte sensor system, the identification information entered by a user of the mobile device via a custom application running on the mobile device; causing the custom application to enter a background mode; searching for advertisement signals; receiving an advertisement signal from the transceiver; authenticating the transceiver based on the identification information; prompting the user to bring the custom application to a foreground mode; causing the custom application to request a confirmation from the user that a data connection with the transceiver is desired; receiving the confirmation from the user; and completing the data connection with the transceiver.

  • Patent number: 10169539
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus, including computer program products, are provided for backfilling. In some example embodiments, there is provided a method that includes receiving, at a receiver, backfill data representative of sensor data stored, at a continuous blood glucose sensor and transmitter assembly, due to a loss of a wireless link between the receiver and the continuous blood glucose sensor and transmitter assembly; generating, at the receiver, at least one of a notification or a graphically distinct indicator for presentation at a display of the receiver, the at least one of the notification or the graphically distinct indicator enabling the backfill data to be graphically distinguished, when presented at the display, from non-backfill data; and generating, at the receiver, a view including the backfill data, the non-backfill data, and the generated at least one of the notification or the graphically distinct indicator. Related systems, methods, and articles of manufacture are also described.

  • Publication number: 20180185587
    Abstract: Systems and methods for integrating a continuous glucose sensor, including a receiver, a medicament delivery device, and optionally a single point glucose monitor are provided. Manual integrations provide for a physical association between the devices wherein a user (for example, patient or doctor) manually selects the amount, type, and/or time of delivery. Semi-automated integration of the devices includes integrations wherein an operable connection between the integrated components aids the user (for example, patient or doctor) in selecting, inputting, calculating, or validating the amount, type, or time of medicament delivery of glucose values, for example, by transmitting data to another component and thereby reducing the amount of user input required. Automated integration between the devices includes integrations wherein an operable connection between the integrated components provides for full control of the system without required user interaction.
