With Glytec, Hospital Moves to Basal-Bolus Insulin, Saves $9.7 Million

The move to quality ratings will put more pressure on hospitals to find ways to improve the standard of care while cutting costs.

A decade ago, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) called for hospitals to shift from sliding scale to subcutaneous basal-bolus insulin therapy for non-critically ill patients, but change has been slow in coming. Fear of hypoglycemia and concerns that staff would not be able to keep up with dosing demands of basal-bolus kept hospitals from upgrading to the standard of care.

Glytec Presents Evidence on How Using Data to Deliver Insulin Improves Outcomes

Using an algorithm to recommend insulin dosing, both in and out of the hospital, was shown to improve glycemic control and aid population health management.

The march toward value-based care is occurring on many fronts, with diabetes quality metrics front and center. Providers from giant hospital systems to primary care practices are looking for ways to find savings—and make patients healthier. In this mix is Glytec, a 10-year-old company founded on the idea that taking guesswork and time out of insulin dosing, first in hospital settings and then outside them, could dramatically reduce episodes of hypo- and hyperglycemia. This would provide savings and lead to better glycated hemoglobin (A1C) levels for patients with previously uncontrolled diabetes.
