1. An integrated therapy system, comprising:

  • an analyte monitor unit including;

    a compact housing;

    a user interface operatively coupled to the compact housing;

    a strip port operatively coupled to the compact housing and configured to receive a glucose test strip;

    a data processing section comprising a processor and a memory, the data processing section operatively coupled to the compact housing and configured to receive a plurality of signals associated with a monitored analyte level from a remote location, and the memory having instructions stored which, when executed by the processor, determines a glucose concentration based on a fluid sample on the glucose test strip; and

    a remote housing positionable on a skin surface at the remote location, the remote housing including a transmitter operatively coupled to an analyte sensor and an on-body patch pump for delivering a medication based at least in part on a delivery profile;

    wherein the analyte monitor unit is in signal communication with the on-body patch pump via the transmitter and the memory having instructions stored which, when executed by the processor, causes the on-body patch pump to deliver a medication based on the delivery profile, wherein the delivery profile includes a plurality of predetermined discrete medication infusions temporally separated by a predetermined time period, and wherein the memory having instructions stored which, when executed by the processor, obtains at least one of the plurality of signals associated with the monitored analyte level substantially immediately prior to each predetermined discrete medication infusion.
