Review of the CoPilot® Health Management System - Page 4


Accessibility

CoPilot® makes use of keyboard shortcuts to open main menu items but not items within the drop down list. You can use the up and down arrows to select an item, but for selecting a report we experienced several lockups on both test machines. This behavior was somewhat consistent when not using a mouse, resulting in a forced shut down of the application.

Intuitiveness

For retrieving data from your glucose meter this program is simple to use. The large buttons on the home page makes it very clear the purpose of that button. Data transfer from your compatible glucose meter is easy. After the initial transfer where you assign the meter to a user, successive transfers only take one click.

Exporting Data

Aside from synchronizing your data with your HCP, you can also export documents as PDF's or e-mail reports with PDF's as attachments. You can export your data as an XML file, however both our test machines produced a file no other program could open due to errors in the file structure. CoPilot® can import these XML files back in, so they are useful. You can also export to a .TAB ( tab delaminated) file which MS Excel opened without problem.
Then of coarse you can always print. With all the color in these charts, make sure your ink cartridges are in good shape. I printed the charts in B&W and had enough contrast to make them beneficial to the doctor.

My regular readers know that I consider agave to be a BIG enemy to health and beauty- which is very high in fructose (up to 97% fructose). It truly irks me that sly marketing makes the general public think agave is a “healthy” sweetener, and that it continues to be used in “health” products purported to be better than regular baked or other goods, as well as in many restaurants. It is not.
