1. A method of using a receiver and an analyte monitoring device comprising a single analyte sensor and one or more processors operatively coupled to the single analyte sensor, wherein the single analyte sensor is the only analyte sensor of the analyte monitoring device, the method comprising:

  • positioning the single analyte sensor in contact with fluid in a human body to monitor an analyte level in the fluid;

    generating, using the positioned single analyte sensor, one or more signals corresponding to the monitored analyte level in the fluid;

    performing, with the one or more processors, a data verification routine on at least first information concerning validity of values of the one or more signals generated by the positioned single analyte sensor and second information not concerning the one or more signals from the positioned single analyte sensor, wherein the first information is derived from the single analyte sensor and the second information is derived from a source other than the single analyte sensor, and wherein the data verification routine identifies a first plurality of error conditions related to operation of the analyte monitoring device from the first information and a second error condition related to operation of the analyte monitoring device from the second information;

    wirelessly transmitting, to the receiver, data concerning the one or more signals generated by the positioned single analyte sensor, and a plurality of corresponding error flags associated with the identified first plurality of error conditions and the second error condition; and

    determining validity, by the receiver, of the data concerning the one or more signals generated by the positioned single analyte sensor, at least in part, by detection of the plurality of corresponding error flags.
