1. A system for transferring data comprising:

  • (a) an analyte test instrument which is adapted to store data, said analyte test instrument having a first data communication device, the first data communication device having a test port for receiving an analyte test strip;

    (b) an adaptor removably connected to said analyte test instrument, said adaptor being in data communication with said analyte test instrument through a first data communication channel, and(c) a data management device in data communication with said adaptor through a second data communication channel, said second data communication channel being a wireless data communication channel, said adaptor comprising;

    (1) a second data communication device;

    (2) a microcontroller in electrical connection with said second data communication device;

    (3) a wireless controller in electrical connection with said microcontroller; and

    (4) a wireless transceiver in electrical connection with said wireless controller, said wireless transceiver being adapted to wirelessly communicate with said data management device through the second data communication channel wherein, said adaptor further comprises;

    (i) memory in electrical connection with said microcontroller;

    (ii) a housing shaped to define an interior cavity; and

    (iii) a portion of the second data communication device extending out from the housing and capable of being removably received within the analyte test port of the first communication device so as to establish the first data communication channel between said adaptor and said analyte test instrument.
