Diabetes management has become a well suited use case for Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) because of its heavy reliance on self-management and use of home medical devices.
For many patients – regardless of disease or condition – it is not a given that they are in regular contat with a medical specialist. Doctors are a in shortage all over the world, and highly specialised medical professionals even more so. Diabetics need to be in regular contact with professionals, who can provide the necessary care. RPM can bridge this gap and provide patients with close and qualified monitoring.
Our RPM solution Levvel.connect enables continuous glucose monitoring for people with type 1 diabetes, and can connect with devices such as CGM systems, insulin pumps, and Bluetooth glucose meters.
With the push of a button in the patient app, data from the patients’ medical devices are uploaded to the cloud, where clinicians can review them.
No waiting time, no travel hassle or needing to take time off from work.
And the endocrinologists do not have to be concerned about patient no-shows. Instead, they will be given a comprehensive insight in patient data in a structured and prioritized overview.
RPM is equally relevant whether the patient’s diabetes is well-controlled or not.
If a patient’s diabetes is well-controlled, they might be able to skip an in-clinic visit and rest assured that they are being cared for, as their doctor follows their sugars and symptoms continously.
If a patient’s diabetes is not well-controlled, RPM reveals fluctuations in their symptoms between in-clinic visits. The patients don’t have to remember their data; the data have already been submitted and evaluated. Most importantly, the endocrinologists caring for the diabetic can react as soon as a change in the patient’s conditions is registered. Neither the doctors nor the patients have to wait for an in-clinic visit before an intervention is spotted and can be acted upon.
In addition to actively aiding the treatment of diabetics, the patients have a secondary gain from remote patient monitoring. They too get a comprehensive insight in their health, which is proven to result in better adherence and thereby better health outcomes.
