MyVirtualHealthCheck.com is a Web site designed to help people better manage chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. By providing a suite of advanced Web-based tools, MyVirtualHealthCheck.com gives users a seamless way to record, monitor and share their important vital sign data (glucose, blood pressure, heart rate and weight) with their doctors, caregivers and loved ones. The process is safe, private and convenient, using a secure Web interface, mobile devices and/or a PC gateway compatible with wireless (Bluetooth), in-home monitoring devices.
