August 14, 2017 Dr. Andrew Rhinehart Discusses Glytec’s Contribution to Value-Based Reforms Value-based purchasing is happening and Glytec is participating in this new and transitioning form of care, says Andrew Rhinehart, MD, chief medical officer at Glytec. This extension of care beyond the hospital for diabetes needs is promising in producing better patient outcomes. Transcript (slightly modified) Why are glucose …
The Wyoming, Michigan-based healthcare organization will partner with Glytec to provide patients an integrated model of technology-enabled glycemic management.
Known for high-quality, personalized care and award-winning services, Metro Health – University of Michigan Health is taking inpatient diabetes management to the next level. With a decades-long focus on ensuring glucose control is a top priority, the healthcare organization has selected Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS®) to advance the standardization of best practice. The software-as-a-medical-device eGMS® platform is both patented and FDA cleared.
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®.
According to new data from a quality improvement study, patients with diabetes experienced no diabetes-related readmissions, urgent care visits, or emergency department visits within 30 days of hospital discharge when their healthcare providers used Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System to guide insulin regimens prescribed at discharge.
Researchers at Eastern Virginia Medical School conducted the study and presented their findings earlier this month at the 17th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting in Bethesda, Maryland.
New data presented at the 17th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting observed no diabetes-related readmissions, urgent care visits or emergency department visits within 30 days of hospital discharge when using Glytec’s software.
A prospective quality improvement study led by Eastern Virginia Medical School and presented at the 17th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting highlights the importance of properly managing transitions of care for patients with diabetes. The study observed that when providers used the Hospital-to-Home (H2H®) module of Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® to guide insulin regimens prescribed at discharge, patients had no diabetes-related readmissions, urgent care visits or emergency department visits within the first 30 days.
Diabetes educators learned how Glytec’s software and other data-driven technologies help overcome key challenges of insulin management.
A presentation on diabetes decision support solutions at this year’s American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) conference showcased how use of Glytec’s therapy management software in conjunction with connected device systems is breaking down barriers to effective and timely insulin management and, as a result, reducing the risks and costs of diabetes for providers, payers and patients alike.
The company’s eGlycemic Management System® featuring Glucommander™ has the broadest indications for use of any decision support solution for insulin titration.
The pioneer of diabetes therapy management software, Glytec announces its fourth FDA clearance, adding a broad array of capabilities to Glucommander™, the core of its patented eGlycemic Management System®. As the first company to receive FDA clearance for an insulin titration decision support solution — a milestone that occurred in 2006, the year it was founded — Glytec continues to lead this critically important and evolving category of technology-enabled medication optimization.
The findings come as CMS targets cardiac procedures in both its hospital readmission reduction program and in a bundled payment model set to take effect July 1, 2017.
Glytec, which has FDA clearance for a cloud-based system to manage insulin dosing, selected MSHA as a research site for its electronic glucose management system, or eGMS. According to the studies Parsons and Mumpower presented in November at the Diabetes Technology Meeting showcase, eGMS produced sharp drops in readmission rates in 3 areas of cardiac care.
This latest notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office deepens Glytec’s intellectual property protections and further validates its leadership stature in the healthcare market.
Glytec today announces another notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS®), a modularized software-as-a-service solution used by hospitals and health systems for personalized insulin dosing, enterprise glucose surveillance, performance-driven analytics, and more. This latest notice comes on the heels of three others received this past September — adding to U.S. Patent 9,233,204 and U.S. Patent 9,171,343 — bringing the total number of patents held by Glytec to six, with more than 50 U.S. and international patents pending.
Two studies presented at the 16th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting showcase readmission reductions as high as 68% with Glytec’s solution.
Two new studies presented at last week’s Diabetes Technology Meeting further validate the ability of Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS®) to achieve dramatic readmission reductions for patient populations at the center of new at-risk and value-based reimbursement models, including the CMS Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP) and impending bundled payment for coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG).
