Electronic Diabetes Management System Replaces Paper Insulin Chart: Improved Quality in Diabetes Inpatient Care Processes Due to Digitalization

J Diabetes Sci Technol. September 2020:1932296820957043

https://dx.doi.org/10.1177/1932296820957043

Background: GlucoTab, an electronic diabetes management system (eDMS), supports healthcare professionals (HCPs) in inpatient blood glucose (BG) management at point-of-care and was implemented for the first time under routine conditions in a regional hospital to replace the paper insulin chart.

Method: To investigate quality of the eDMS for inpatients with type 2 diabetes mellitus a monocentric retrospective before-after evaluation was conducted. We compared documentation ...

Safe and Sufficient Glycemic Control by Using a Digital Clinical Decision Support System for Patients With Type 2 Diabetes in a Routine Setting on General Hospital Wards

J Diabetes Sci Technol. September 2020:1932296820955243.

https://dx.doi.org/10.1177/1932296820955243

The aim was to investigate the applicability of a clinical decision support system in a real-world inpatient setting for patients with type 2 diabetes on general hospital wards.A total of 150 patients with type 2 diabetes requiring subcutaneous insulin therapy were treated with basal-bolus insulin therapy guided by a decision support system (GlucoTab) providing automated workflow tasks and suggestions for insulin dosing to ...

Diabetes Management According to Health Status in Older Adults with Type 2 Diabetes Staying in Geriatric Care Facilities

J Diabetes Sci Technol. February 2020:1932296820905827.

https://dx.doi.org/10.1177/1932296820905827

Background: About 25% of adults >70 years suffer from type 2 diabetes. Due to the heterogeneity of the geriatric population, guidelines emphasize the need to individualize glycemic goals and simplify treatment strategies with the main focus of avoiding hypoglycemia. The aim of this study was to assess glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes in geriatric care facilities based on their individual ...

GlucoTab-guided insulin therapy using insulin glargine U300 enables glycaemic control with low risk of hypoglycaemia in hospitalized patients with type 2 diabetes

Diabetes, Obes Metab. 2019;21(3):584-591.

https://dx.doi.org/10.1111/dom.13559

Aims: To investigate efficacy, safety and usability of the GlucoTab system for glycaemic management using insulin glargine U300 in non-critically ill hospitalized patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D).

Materials and methods: In this open, non-controlled single-arm pilot study, glycaemic control at the general ward of a tertiary care hospital was guided by a mobile decision support system (GlucoTab) for basal-bolus insulin dosing using the novel basal ...

Feasibility and safety of using an automated decision support system for insulin therapy in the treatment of steroid-induced hyperglycemia in patients with acute graft-versus-host disease: A randomized trial

J Diabetes Investig. 2019;10(2):339-342.

https://dx.doi.org/10.1111/jdi.12919

Steroid-induced hyperglycemia (SIHG) has shown to independently increase the risk for mortality in patients with acute graft-versus-host disease, and it is still unclear whether SIHG might be a modifiable risk factor. Therefore, a feasibility trial was carried out aiming to evaluate the performance of a standardized decision support system (GlucoTab [GT]) for insulin therapy in patients with SIHG. A total of 10 hyperglycemic acute graft-versus-host ...

Efficacy, usability and sequence of operations of a workflow-integrated algorithm for basal-bolus insulin therapy in hospitalized type 2 diabetes patients

Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism 16(2):137-146, 2014
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23910952

In this proof-of-concept study during the beginning stages of GlucoTab development, an algorithm for basal-bolus insulin therapy was integrated into the workflow of a hospital ward, and glycemic control and usability were evaluated.
