1. A method comprising:

  • receiving, at the data processing hardware, sequential scheduled blood glucose time intervals throughout a day from a healthcare provider computing device in communication with the data processing hardware, each scheduled blood glucose time interval associated with a corresponding adjustable time boundary that does not overlap with other time boundaries associated with the other scheduled blood glucose time intervals;

    obtaining, at the data processing hardware, blood glucose data of the patient from a glucometer in communication with the computing device, the blood glucose data including blood glucose measurements of the patient, blood glucose times associated with the blood glucose measurements, and carbohydrate-to-insulin ratios associated with the blood glucose measurements;

    for each scheduled blood glucose time interval, aggregating, by the data processing hardware, the blood glucose measurements associated with the corresponding scheduled blood glucose time interval based on the blood glucose times to determine a corresponding representative aggregate blood glucose measurement associated with the corresponding scheduled blood glucose time interval;

    determining, by the data processing hardware, a next recommended carbohydrate-to-insulin ratio for the patient during a selected time interval based on the representative aggregate blood glucose measurement associated with the scheduled blood glucose time interval that occurs immediately after the selected time interval;

    obtaining, by the data processing hardware, a number of carbohydrates consumed by the patient during the selected time interval;

    determining, by the data processing hardware, a recommended meal bolus for the patient based on the next recommended carbohydrate-to-insulin ratio for the patient during the selected time interval and the number of carbohydrates consumed by the patient during the selected time interval; and

    transmitting the recommended meal bolus to an administration device in communication with the data processing hardware, the administration device comprising;

    a doser; and

    an administration computing device in communication with the doser, the administration computing device configured to automatically dial in a number of units of insulin for the recommended meal bolus and cause the doser to administer the number of units of insulin for the recommended meal bolus.
