1. A modular system for providing integrated medication delivery and analyte level monitoring, comprising:

  • a replaceable first modular component configured to deliver medication, the first modular component comprising a connection port and a processing unit;

    a replaceable second modular component configured to monitor an analyte level with a sensor tip portion, wherein the second modular component is connectable to the connection port of the first modular component to establish electrical contact between the sensor tip portion and the processing unit of the first modular component such that a signal corresponding to the analyte level passes from the sensor tip portion, through the connection port, and is received at the processing unit; and

    a third modular component connectable to the connection port of the first modular component only when the second modular component is disconnected from the connection port, wherein the first modular component is operable when the third modular component is connected to the connection port of the first modular component;

    wherein a first substantially water tight seal is formed at the connection port when the first and second modular components are connected, or a second substantially water tight seal is formed at the connection port when the first and third modular components are connected,wherein the first modular component comprises a reusable portion and a disposable portion, the disposable portion including one or more of an infusion set or a reservoir containing the medication for delivery, andwherein either of the second or third modular components are connectable to the reusable portion of the first modular component.
