The GlucoTab® system provides support for nursing staff and physicians involved in the insulin therapy of patients with diabetes on hospital wards. The system improves blood glucose management workflow and automatically suggests correct insulin dosages.

Comprehensive therapy support through GlucoTab

GlucoTab Therapy Algorithms

Evidence-based, clinically tested therapy algorithms support the individual patient’s blood glucose control.

  • Calculation of a safe insulin dose at the start of therapy, prescribed by physicians
  • Daily suggestion for the adjustment of the planned daily insulin dose (by physicians or nursing staff)
  • Dose calculation for each individual insulin dose considers blood glucose level and meal (nursing staff)

Therapy without algorithm support

Prescription and adjustment of the therapy exclusively by physicians.

The dose calculation for nurses is supported by:

  • Bolus calculator for type 1 diabetes / intensive insulin therapy
  • Sliding scale for supplemental insulin

GlucoTab Basal-Bolus Therapy

This is the type of therapy recommended by guidelines for in-patients.
To reduce complications during in-patient therapy, a fixed blood glucose target range is aimed for.

GlucoTab Basal Insulin (BOT/BIT) Therapy

For geriatric patients with less restrictive blood glucose target values or if therapy with basal insulin is sufficient (e.g. after newly initiated insulin therapy)
Therapy intensity depends on the health status

Physician-driven therapy

For patients, whose individual metabolic situation requires special medical therapy.

Patient Self-Management

Flexible documentation if trained patients perform insulin dosing themselves also in inpatient diabetes management.
Patient determines dose himself

  • in combination with oral antidiabetic drugs and incretins
  • optional addition of short-acting insulin in the morning or with the largest meal of the day

All variants of medication prescription can be freely selected and dosed:

  • long acting insulin
  • short acting insulin
    • fixed dose order
    • supplemental insulin (sliding scale) for high BG values
    • bolus calculator for intensive insulin therapy using carbohydrate factor and correction factor
  • premixed insulin
  • incretins
  • oral antidiabetic drugs

Electronic diabetes medication management system

User-friendly performance and visualisation of all relevant operations for blood glucose management. Open tasks for physicians and nursing staff support the workflow.

GlucoTab Benefits

GlucoTab helps improve the quality of care. This means that each group involved in the treatment process benefits:

Medical staff are better supported and mistakes are avoided. Patients directly benefit from improved treatment, while the organisations that run the healthcare facility benefit from a reduction in costs.

GlucoTab Process

GlucoTab® enables the electronic planning, performance and documentation of all ward specific workflow steps necessary for managing blood sugar. Medical doctors and nurses receive all relevant information context-sensitively. Workflow is additionally supported by unobtrusive visual reminders.

About us

The company „decide Cinical Software GmbH” specializes in solutions that support clinical decisions and processes – GlucoTab for diabetes mellitus is our first product. Thus, we support anyone responsible for treating patients in making decisions – many times a day, with each decision a brand new challenge..

New GlucoTab version 7.1 is in operation since November 2020.

The following improvements and changes were implemented:

  • Displaying or filtering available and unavailable medications in the facility.
    • The list for selecting drugs now additionally shows whether a drug is available or not.
    • There is also an additional filter function to show only available drugs in the list. For pre-therapy and self-management, all drugs are listed by default, for inpatient therapy only the available drugs are displayed.
  • Electronic version of the user manual
    • In addition to the printed version of the user manual, with version 7.1 it is possible to access an electronic version of the user manual directly from GlucoTab.
  • After importing a hypoglycemic blood glucose value, a task for a control measurement is now automatically created. This automatism was previously only provided after manual entry with a confirmation dialog.
  • Stopping a patient’s enrollment by a nurse now requires a verbal order from a physician when the patient has prescribed therapy.
  • An additional user manual for operation (technical manual) has been prepared.

GlucoTab version 7.1 shall be the first GlucoTab version with certification according to the new European Medical Device Regulation (MDR).

  • The relevant preparations have been made, and the entire technical documentation has been revised with regard to the requirements of the MDR and submitted to the notified body for review.
