The authors designed an interactive telecare system (ITCS) enhanced by Internet of Things (IoT) technology that enables direct communication between patients' medical devices and caregivers' smartphones to improve the quality of care for chronically ill patients. This system can remotely activate hardware components of medical devices in real time to access current information and smartphones via a telecare application. A case study was constructed with 2.5G blood glucose monitors (BGMs) integrated with a cloud platform and with Android and iOS telecare applications. Overseas medical institutions have confirmed the system's potential value in chronic-illness treatment regimens and have provided useful feedback.
