Glytec Goes Global, With Six New International Patent Allowances

The digital therapeutics pioneer is expanding its intellectual property footprint beyond the U.S., gaining worldwide protections for its proprietary diabetes therapy management solutions.

The rise in diabetes is truly a global phenomenon. The World Health Organization has been vocal about the estimated 422 million people living with diabetes, saying: “the prevalence of diabetes is steadily increasing everywhere” and “diabetes and its complications impact harshly on the finances of individuals and their families, and the economies of nations.” Glytec recognizes that optimizing diabetes medications and making insulin a more effective and accessible option stands to benefit not only those living in the U.S, but people around the world. To that end, the company is growing its intellectually property portfolio on an international scale.

Computerized Systems for Managing Glucose Will Become Standard of Care in Hospitals, Anticipates Dr. Bruce Bode

A presentation at ATTD 2019 by renowned diabetologist and researcher, Dr. Bruce Bode, showcased superior clinical and financial outcomes with Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® versus usual care across multiple studies.

In conclusion to his plenary session at the 12th International Conference on Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD 2019), Dr. Bruce Bode delivered a call-to-action to an audience of his peers, espousing they do what is necessary to normalize glucose for all hospitalized patients (emphasis on ALL). He stressed that rates of hypoglycemia remain unacceptably high and use of sliding scale insulin continues to be prevalent despite abundant evidence denouncing it as unsafe and lacking efficacy. “Patients deserve better,” said Bode. With a clear focus on the solution to a decades-long problem of poor glucose control in hospitals, Bode described in detail the advantages of computerized decision support, highlighting data from multiple studies of Glytec’s FDA-cleared eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS®) that demonstrate consistently superior outcomes versus usual care, including significant reductions in hypoglycemia, 30-day readmissions and lengths of stay.

At a Cost of $10,405 Per Patient Stay, Hypoglycemia in The Hospital Cannot Be Ignored

A diabetes webinar hosted by the American Hospital Association and sponsored by Glytec showcased why hypoglycemia prevention is imperative to the safety of patients and to the economics of healthcare delivery.

Featured speakers, Dr. Richard Pratley of Florida Hospital System and Dr. Steven Edelman of UC San Diego Health, recently delivered a unified message to several hundred senior healthcare professionals attending an American Hospital Association webinar: Hypoglycemia [low blood sugar] in the hospital is a major patient safety risk with significant clinical and financial implications. A case study presented by Pratley further revealed that insulin-managed patients who experience severe hypoglycemia, or blood sugar less than 40 mg/dL, have longer stays, higher readmission and mortality rates, and an overall cost of care $10,405 greater than patients whose blood sugar remains in the normal range.
