FireLogic, Inc. today debuted the next generation of its HealthEngage Disease Management software system with versions for Type I & II Diabetics.

HealthEngage Diabetes provides an easy, yet complete tool for Diabetics to enter their health information from any desktop computer or Palm device.

Using the software, diabetics and their Doctors are able to better manage their conditions and spot dangerous trends before they become life threatening. Diabetics can collect, graph and produce reports about their condition for their Doctor with one click of the mouse.

Over 135 new features and enhancements have been added to the system. The nutrition section utilizes the USDA’s official database of over 6700 foods. The exercise section includes the National Sports Medicine Association’s database of over 700 exercises and physical activities. Users can also set reminders for appointments, refills, etc. and can even enter their complete laboratory test results and medications into which can then be kept as their personal digital health record.

FireLogic believes that it has created the most powerful diabetes management software tool available. By creating a specially optimized version of its software for Mac OS X, the company hopes to ensure that Apple CEO Steve Jobsi concept of the "digital hub" will expand beyond entertainment and bring new meaning to the old saying “An Apple a day keeps the Doctor away.”
