What about the MyCareTeam diabetes management application that Google already offers? Is it mainly a program to connect and download data off our glucose monitors?

“MyCareTeam is a full disease management program with logs for tracking glucose, meals and nutrition information and insulin and other meds. You can upload your data automatically using LifeScan OneTouch® meters, and I’m sure they’ll be adding other models in the near future.

MyCareTeam also offers secure messaging to what they call your ‘provider team,’ so you can list your doctors and other health professionals and start corresponding with them if they provide their email addresses. They have to give consent, of course, and the messaging must be on a secure platform.”
