People with diabetes need to be able to see their data in order to learn from it. That means being able to easily collect it and see it in context of our day to day lives. Up to now, this has been nearly impossible.
Meet Blip, the hub for your diabetes data, where everything shows up, where all of the insulin pumps, monitors, tests, meals, exercise, sleep start to make sense. It’s simple. It’s visual. It makes it easier to get data from your devices, even if they are from different manufacturers, and makes that data usable.
Even without your doctor, Blip is useful for people who want to dive into their data. It’s even more useful when your doctor is plugged into it. It is a communication tool to talk about and learn from your device data.
Blip transforms four doctor visits per year into lightweight, ongoing conversations between healthcare providers and their patients. Using messaging tools, Blip lets school nurses, day care providers, teachers, families and doctors see the same thing at the same time and adjust treatment accordingly. Now everybody is on the same team.

Blip does most of the work automatically and behind the scenes. All of the relevant data is collected in one place: carbohydrate consumption and insulin dosage from pumps; blood glucose levels from finger pokes and from continuous glucose monitors; even activity data from devices like FitBit and Nike Fuel Band. With all of the data seamlessly integrated into a dynamic visual that can be annotated by anyone on the care team, nothing falls through the cracks. And because Blip is based on the Tidepool Platform, it means you can incorporate data from different devices, even if they are from different manufacturers, in one place at one time. Imagine seeing data from a Medtronic pump and a Dexcom CGM together, in one place. At last.
