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.
Coverage from the 2017 meeting of the American Association of Diabetes Educators.
Andrew Rhinehart, MD, chief medical officer at Glytec, discusses the transition from intermediate outcomes in diabetes research of glycemic results to harder outcomes that will benefit the patient financially and through their care.
Patient engagement offers opportunities for shared decision making between visits, when those with diabetes or obesity make choices about food, exercise, or medication that affect health outcomes.
Material suppliers, manufacturers, pharmacies, and rebate programs all contribute to the rising prices of insulin, according to Alan Carter, PharmD, principal investigator and senior advisor at MRIGlobal, and adjunct faculty at University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Pharmacy.
The move to quality ratings will put more pressure on hospitals to find ways to improve the standard of care while cutting costs.
Glytec’s Glucommander electronic glucose management system (eGMS) helped the Kaweah Delta hospital shift its standard of care to basal-bolus insulin, explained Raymie McFarland, vice president of Quality Initiatives at Glytec. Basal-bolus is considered best practice and is safer for patients, but many hospitals have not adopted it due to its difficulty. Glytec hopes its eGMS can change that.
