1. A device for determining the concentration of an analyte in a sample, the device comprising:

  • a housing;

    a test strip port disposed in the housing and configured to receive an analyte test strip;

    a processor configured to determine the concentration of an analyte in a sample disposed on the analyte test strip, thereby providing a determined analyte concentration;

    a power source disposed in the housing and electrically coupled to the processor and the test strip port; and

    a communication unit removably connected to the housing through the test strip port and in communication with the processor, wherein the communication unit comprises a wireless transceiver and is configured to receive the determined analyte concentration from the processor through the test strip port and wirelessly transmit the determined analyte concentration to a data management device via the wireless transceiver;

    wherein the power source in the housing provides power to the removably connected communication unit and the wireless transceiver to wirelessly transmit the determined analyte concentration.
