Event Includes Six Studies on Quality and Cost Improvements Achieved Through Glytec eGMS®

WALTHAM, MASS. (June 11, 2020) – Glytec, the only provider of insulin management software across the continuum of care, announced today that healthcare providers from five separate health systems will present studies on the transformative effects of implementing its eGlycemic Management System (eGMS) during the 2020 Diabetes Technology Society (DTS) Virtual Hospital Poster Session. 

Attendees of this online session taking place June 18 at 3 p.m. EDT will hear findings from clinical research into the use of computer-guided insulin dosing and its impact on glycemic management in acute care settings. 

Results of these studies include reduced hyperglycemic and hypoglycemic events, a decreased financial burden on patients and health systems and well-documented efficacy of large-scale eGMS utilization.
