Chinese and Western medicines have a different understanding and approach to life, health, and illness - joining their complementary work and support them by an advanced information technology could result in an improved health system. The Non-Invasive Blood Glucose Measurement (NIGM) Service is a grid based implementation of a novel non-invasive method for measuring human blood glucose values exploiting Chinese meridian theory. In this paper, we describe the implementation of the NIGM service in detail, present an initial performance evaluation and discuss an extension towards other non-invasive long term diabetic relevant measurement. Additionally, the adaption of the ontology-based Medical records Annotation Tool (MedAT) framework towards usage in NIGM trails is elaborated.
