Help with the diabetes care that has been postponed due to the pandemic
The pandemic has severely affected the diabetes care. The absent visits create a stress for both the healthcare providers as for the patients that are in need of help and contact with the healthcare.
Patients with the greatest need of care have to be identified and prioritized. Healthcare professionals need better tools to identify the right patients.
An overview of all patients at the clinic can be used as priority support
DDAnalytics generates automatic analyses and interpretations of the patients’ continuous glucose data as well as a clinic overview that can be used as a priority support, PRIO.
PRIO gathers all patients at the clinic in one overview. Groups composed of patients with similar glucose controlare generated. PRIO thereby helps the clinic to prioritize the patients with most urgent needs.
PRIO creates conditions to adapt the care and meet theneeds of the individuals, increases quality and saves time.
Even if you are a specialist, you have to spend a lot of hours analysing each patient’s daily, weekly and monthly values in order to be able to give the right treatment and recommendations. For PRIO, it only takes a few minutes.
How it works
The Patients’ glucose data are uploaded to DDanalytics
The PRIO report is generated after the patients’ data have been uploaded to the system
Basis for decisions about care & prioritisation
The PRIO-report is the basis for further decisions on care paths and patient visits
With the help of the clinic overview, PRIO, you get a tool to prioritize and book the right patients based on the patients’ individual needs and the resources of the clinic.
The green circles show groups of patients with good glucose control who only need help with prescription renewal and have no use of being prioritized for standard controls.
The clinic overview helps to create standardized care paths for each profile group of patients.
There are opportunities for major improvements with automated interpretation of glucose data in investments already made in CGM/FGM sensors
The increased use of CGM/FGM sensors within diabetes care enables analysis of patients’ glucose values. Despite huge investments in sensors, patients with diabetes have not yet significantly improved their glucose control.
The vast amount of collected data are impossible to interpret without the help of complex systems. Today, praxis is still manual interpretation and therefore large amounts of data are not analyzed. Improved dataanalysis is crucial in order to increase the understanding of the diabetes condition and life situation of the individual patient.
According to traditions and praxis, check-ups and patient visits are planned based on calender-controlled planning. All patients with diabetes are called in for an annual visit to a physician or diabetes nurse, regardless of the individual’s needs.
The time for booked visits is seldom linked to when the patient actually needs to get in touch with a doctor or nurse.
Many patients also find it difficult to get access to carewhen they need support with their diabetes.
Others feel that their visits do not need to be booked, since there glucose control is acceptable and they onlyneed renewed prescriptions.
