Diabetes Connect is a home monitoring program offered to patients by their primary care providers or specialists. The program offers patients and their care providers a way to keep track of their health data and to collaborate on a care plan between office visits.
Developed and supported by the Center for Connected Health, Diabetes Connect is a turn-key service for practices to offer home monitoring services for their patients. The Center provides all customer service support.
How does it work?
Patients check their blood sugar levels as they would normally, and as requested by their healthcare providers. When appropriate, often once daily or once weekly, they upload their data from the convenience of their home. Patients also have access to their personalized website where they can track their trends, provide commentary around out-of-range readings or review helpful education resources.
For patients who are actively uploading their glucometer data, we've seen significant improvements in HbA1c levels in a short amount of time. Patients who are newly diagnosed with diabetes, starting insuling therapy, or have elevated A1c levels while on oral medications find real value in the program.
The Center continues to evaluate clinical outcomes, as well as patient and provider satisfaction, engagement levels, and determine workflow and product improvements.
