BS as normal for medtronics consumer facing IT
The app does state it's only for clinicians (if you click on to read the details) but right there is Medtronic's ineptitude laid bare. They truly are idiots who it comes to consumer IT. They belatedly follow the competition to allow Cloud sharing of SG readings... But don't let the custom app for that work for care-givers ... And the care link app (this) only works for the doctors ... So parents still have to navigate their outdated website and still can't properly track their kids safety with their phone!
Medtronic should have fired their tech and IT directors years ago. This only confirms their lack of professional understanding of the field they serve. Makes the vast sums of money they get from pump users seem even more unjustified.
No CARELINK Connection
This app doesn't allow for connectivity to Medtronic's Carelink system. I spent 20 minutes on hold with tech support waiting to speak with someone then when I was connected the operator put me on hold to research the problem, came back and advised me to change my phone's browser. Only after doing research here did I discover that this app is only intended for medical professionals. My home computer's OS isn't up to date enough to run CareLink so I was hoping to take the Medtronic MyLearning educational modules via my phone. Unfortunately this doesn't appear to be an option. It doesn't lift my confidence levels very high if MiniMed can't label their app information very clearly.
App is working but not for us and only for Clinicians
The Medtronic CareLink™ Mobile Application allows clinicians who are authorized to use the CareLink® Network to follow patients implanted with Medtronic cardiac devices to access the CareLink® Network on their mobile device.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
