Remote Blood Glucose Monitoring
Remote monitoring of blood glucose levels can be used to obtain information about a diabetic patient’s sugar levels, symptoms, diet, and medication adherence on a daily basis. Long term, monitoring can lead to changes in a patient’s lifestyle and behavior and may be able to prevent serious complications like blindness, amputations, chronic kidney disease, and stroke.
Flexcare Health Solutions uses advanced technology to enable transmission of individual self-monitored blood glucose values to a certified diabetes educator and pharmacist who reviews the data and notifies the patient and providers that action is needed. Remote monitoring also includes a 15-30 minute monthly remote call or Skype with a certified diabetes educator to review the patient’s blood glucose log and make recommendations such as changes to diet and activity levels.
