A data transfer system is provided for communication with an infusion pump of the type used for programmable delivery of medication such as insulin to a patient. The data transfer system includes a communication station having a shaped pocket formed therein for seated reception of the infusion pump. Optical communication members including light emitting and detecting devices mounted on the pump and station are aligned for two-way data transmission when the pump is seated within the station pocket. The communication station can be used directly to monitor data received from the pump, and to transmit reprogrammed data to the pump, as desired. Alternately, the communication station can provide a data relay link to a remote site such as to a computer via a computer data cable, or a modem.
