Dr. Mansur Shomali, guest editor for the recent edition of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Clinical Diabetes journal on diabetes technology.
Link to read my ADA article for health care providers.
I describe the quadruple aim in health care: better care, better health, lower costs and improving the work life of clinicians. In the article I talk about ways to capture the benefits of diabetes technology while at the same time addressing patient and physician technology burnout. I identify the need for improvement in the EMR (electronic medical record) to facilitate better use of the technology. This ADA journal edition has featured articles on self-blood glucose monitoring, CGM Time in Range, insulin dosing, and challenges and rewards of implementing diabetes technology in primary care.
This edition of the journal is a great read for doctors and other health care providers. Get your cup of coffee and sit down for some good learning and food for thought.
What are your challenges and/or solutions with diabetes technology?
