With approximately 17 million people in the US with diabetes, Medtronic MiniMed has produced several distinct lines of diabetes devices to aid in the treatment of the disease. These devices, however, do not utilize a standard communication format. The Clinic team is designing and implementing an extensible interface that will unify communication with Medtronic MiniMed’s current and future insulin pumps, glucose sensors, and related diabetes technology.
