Study by Riverside Medical Center Shows Reductions in Length of Stay and Hypoglycemia with Glytec’s Insulin Optimization Solution

Presented at the 18th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting, the study found that patients treated using Glytec’s solution had 73.2% less hypoglycemia and no bounce backs once transferred from a CCU to a general ward.

With a shifting reimbursement landscape and acuity on the rise for hospitalized patients, the need to minimize length of stay and increase throughput in critical care units is a priority for health systems nationwide. A study conducted by Riverside Medical Center of Kankakee, Illinois, the flagship facility of Riverside Healthcare and the area’s only Magnet® recognized institution, found that by using Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS®), patients admitted to critical care units were transferred to general wards .25 days sooner and there were no “bounce backs,” or returns from general wards to critical care units. The study, presented at the 18th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting, also found that severe hypoglycemia among patients in critical care units was 73.2% lower when using eGMS®.

Glytec’s Software Yields Superior Patient Outcomes According to Four New Studies in Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology

Safety and efficacy of Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® for diabetes therapy management, and its advantages over conventional methods, is further validated by four peer-reviewed studies.

Four new studies published in the January 2018 issue of Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology (JDST) demonstrate superior patient outcomes and organizational performance with Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS®) versus conventional, paper-based protocols. In all instances, which included both inpatient and outpatient settings, use of eGMS® for diabetes and insulin therapy management was observed to be safer and more effective than ‘usual care,’ with lower rates of hypoglycemia, faster resolution of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), expedited time to target glucose, and sustained reductions in A1c. Additionally, use of eGMS® led to substantive efficiency gains in provider workflows, fewer point-of-care tests, shorter lengths of stay, and full adoption of best practices, including 96% utilization of basal bolus insulin.

Glucommander Linked to Improved Blood Glucose Levels

The inclusion of a computer-guided program (Glucommander) as a component of diabetic ketoacidosis management was associated with significantly less hypoglycemia and faster time to normalization of blood glucose and bicarbonate than standard treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis, according to a new retrospective multicenter study.

The data were presented at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) 25th Annual Scientific & Clinical Congress. The study also demonstrated a significant difference in length of hospital stay for patients treated with Glucommander compared with standard protocol (3.2 vs 4.5 days).

Computer Algorithms Managing Insulin Dosages Result in Better Glycemic Control

When insulin dosages are calculated using computer algorithms to reach target blood glucose levels, hospitalized patients are less likely to have episodes of low blood sugar and recover sooner from diabetic ketoacidosis than when insulin dosages are calculated without an algorithm.

Those were key findings from two multisite studies presented at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists meeting, held May 25-29 in Orlando, Florida. “Computer algorithms facilitate doing the right thing,” said Dr. Joseph A. Aloi, professor of endocrinology and metabolism at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and the studies’ principal investigator.

Hospital Admissions Slashed with Diabetes Software

The use of insulin management software in hospital emergency departments can decrease hospital admissions for diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) by 45%, according to a new study.

Hospital admissions were reduced by starting patients on IV insulin using Glucommander, a cloud-based insulin management software system, according to a new study. The study, conducted by researchers at Eastern Virginia Medical School, was published in Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics.

New Study Demonstrates Effectiveness and Cost Savings of Glytec’s Cloud-Based Decision Support System to Treat Diabetic Ketoacidosis in the Emergency Department

Study leveraging Glytec’s Glucommander IV demonstrated a lower rate of admissions and future hospitalizations, resulting in a cost savings of $78,000 within 12 months.

Glytec, the pioneer and leader in providing innovative glucose decision support software solutions for effective diabetes management, is pleased to share the results of a study conducted in collaboration with Wake Forest Medical School, Eastern Virginia Medical School, and Sentara Healthcare. The study demonstrated intensive insulin therapy used in emergency departments (ED) is useful in treating patients with mild to moderate diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), resulting in a lower rate of admissions and future admissions to the hospital along with significant cost savings.

E-Check of Sugar Aids in Inpatient Hypoglycemia Control

Electronic monitoring of blood sugar levels may diminish hypoglycemia and reduce length of stay in hospitalized diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) patients, researchers reported here.

In one study, patients monitored with the Glucommander system reduced episodes of hypoglycemia by 56%, Joseph Aloi, MD, director of the Strelitz Diabetes Center at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, and colleagues reported at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists meeting here. In a second study, they showed that the same system reduced the overall hospital length of stay by nearly 2 1/2 days in patients with diabetic ketoacidosis.
