The iGlucose® Cell-Enabled Diabetes Care Solution from Smart Meter is now compatible with Glytec’s virtual insulin titration service
For millions of patients with diabetes who’ve been unable to achieve their treatment goals, few programs have the potential to reduce A1C faster or more effectively than Glytec’s virtual insulin titration service. The innovative service harnesses the integration of Glytec’s Glucommander™ Outpatient software with multiple connected diabetes technologies and health information systems, including those for blood glucose measurement, insulin delivery, medical record keeping and patient communication, among others. The latest company to join Glytec’s network of connected solution partners is Smart Meter, LLC, maker of the iGlucose® Cell-Enabled Diabetes Care Solution, bringing timely, complete and accurate data to insulin titration.
“Healthcare organizations that use our virtual insulin titration service will now have the option of enrolling patients who use iGlucose®,” explains Glytec’s Chief Medical Officer and diabetologist, Dr. Andrew S. Rhinehart. “Through seamless integration of our respective technologies, blood glucose data sent from the iGlucose® Platform to the Cloud will be used by Glucommander™ Outpatient to calculate personalized insulin dose recommendations.”
Glytec’s virtual insulin titration service is designed expressly for healthcare provider and payer organizations aiming to deliver the very best diabetes care while also curbing ever-increasing costs. “Poor control is not only a major safety concern, but also a major driver of excess resources and cost,” says Rhinehart. “Evidence has shown that when Glucommander™ Outpatient is used in conjunction with connected diabetes technologies, patients can significantly lower A1C and achieve prescribed targets very efficiently, with little to no mild or severe hypoglycemia. This means they are better able to avoid the pitfalls and complications that lead to unnecessary visits to their doctor’s office, trips to the emergency department and hospitalizations.” With iGlucose®, clinicians have an additional opportunity to utilize real-time population management tools for further efficiencies and reimbursable remote monitoring.
Glytec works with healthcare provider and payer organizations to determine the resources, technologies and systems best suited to their objectives and to the patients being served, then tailors the virtual insulin titration service accordingly. “We are assembling best-in-class resources to complement our proprietary software, methodologies and analytics, and of course, the expertise and services of our personnel,” explains Glytec’s President and CEO, Bob Leonard. “We are very pleased to welcome Smart Meter to our partner network, and look forward to providing mutual clients the opportunity to serve patients who use iGlucose®.”
Smart Meter’s CEO, Cliff McIntosh, adds: “As a connected solution partner, our goal is to provide Glytec real-time patient data that reliably supports their virtual insulin titration service while offering mutual clients a solution that’s convenient, simple and affordable. Through our cell-enabled technology, we are empowering patients with an easier way to share their data. Furthermore, iGlucose® provides clinicians and payers with powerful diabetes tools to markedly improve overall health outcomes. Our partnership with Glytec is another exciting opportunity to enhance connected health.”
