Glytec publishes free eBook: Hypoglycemia in the hospital. Why is it costing you millions and what can you do?

The popular eBook showcases clinical and financial implications of hypoglycemia, a common occurrence among hospitalized patients that costs the average hospital $1.5 to $5.6 million a year, or more.

Hypoglycemia in the hospital is common, costly, extremely serious and largely preventable, but many c-suite and business office executives are unaware of what it is, why it occurs or the significant impact it has on patient safety, outcomes and economics. A new eBook from Glytec, offered free of charge at the company’s website, shines a light on critical concerns surrounding hypoglycemia and helps healthcare organizations understand how to mitigate risks and initiate optimal prevention strategies. Availability of the eBook is especially timely given the hypoglycemia quality measure currently under development by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
