Results of a study by Drs. Guillermo Umpierrez and Jordan Messler observed markedly lower rates of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia among critical care patients managed with Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® versus usual care.
Delivering the highest quality care in accordance with best practice is a fundamental tenet of diabetes and glycemic management at Grady Hospital of Atlanta, Georgia, which is why in 2016, the academic medical center chose to standardize its approach and elevate both safety and efficacy by implementing Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS®) in its intensive care and step-down units. A retrospective analysis conducted by Drs. Guillermo Umpierrez and Jordan Messler, and presented at the American Diabetes Association 79th Scientific Sessions, observed that outcomes of patients managed with eGMS® were consistently superior to those managed with a standard protocol. Outcomes measured over a two-year period (December 2016 to December 2018) included incidence of hypoglycemia, incidence of hyperglycemia, target glucose attainment, and reduction in admission-to-discharge blood glucose.
