Self-management of chronic disease

Remote diabetes care

Diabetes management has become well suited to the use of telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring, particularly because of its heavy reliance on self-management and use of home medical devices.

For many patients, continuous contact with subspecialists is made difficult due to their insufficient numbers or sparse geographical distribution. 

With Remote Patient Monitoring, patients can receive close and qualified monitoring remotely. The right solution enables continuous glucose monitoring for people with type 1 diabetes, and it can connect with devices such as CGM systems, insulin pumps, and Bluetooth glucose meters. The connected devices allow for easy upload of data from the patient at home to the cloud, making it possible for clinicians to review aggregated diabetes device data.
No waiting time, travel hassle or needing to take time off from work, and the doctor does not have to be concerned about patient no-shows. Instead, the doctor will be given a comprehensive insight in patient data, which is particularly helpful for patients who do not have a well-controlled diabetes why their condition and its symptoms can fluctuate quite a lot between in-clinic visits. For patients, comprehensive insight in their health results in better treatment and better health outcomes.

Top 10 Tips for Successfully Implementing a Diabetes Telehealth Program

Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics, Dec 2020

Looking to the future, perhaps the most transformative opportunity for telehealth lies with a population-based, panel management approach to care. In this scenario, telehealth would become the primary modality of care with in-person care reserved for less common circumstances. A provider might start each day with an electronic dashboard populated in real time by patients’ most recent laboratory results, CGM data, insulin delivery data, and other patient-reported outcomes captured on a patient’s mobile device such as mood or diabetes distress.
