Study Presented at American Diabetes Association 79th Scientific Sessions Observed Substantially Less Hypoglycemia With Use of Glytec’s Technology

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.

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.
