1. A hand-held processing device, comprising:

  • an analyte measurement module removably coupled to a housing, wherein the analyte measurement module includes a setup component having processor-executable instructions;

    a memory unit disposed within the housing;

    a processor disposed within the housing, wherein the processor is in communication with the memory unit;

    a data isolation circuit for isolated data transmission between the analyte measurement module and the memory unit;

    a power transfer circuit for delivering power to the analyte measurement module, wherein the analyte measurement module is configured to communicate the setup component to the memory unit within the housing, via the data isolation circuit, after power has been delivered to the analyte measurement module via the power transfer circuit, and wherein the processor within the housing is configured to execute the instructions of the setup component; and

    a connector unit in communication with the processor, wherein the connector unit is configured to provide a connection between the hand-held processing device and an external computer, and wherein the processor is configured to transmit data between the memory unit and the external computer when the connection is provided.
