Diabetes affects nearly a third of Medicare beneficiaries. As a leading chronic disease among this population, they are more likely to report negative outcomes such as more inpatient admissions and worse general health.
How can we improve this reality? Driving positive outcomes with virtual care solutions for diabetic populations can help.
Programs like Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Chronic Care Management (CCM) can provide this at-risk population with benefits such as personalized preventative care, consistent monitoring, and self-management education. These efforts can then lead to improved clinical outcomes.
In fact, diabetic patients within these programs are reported to have higher rates of engagement and satisfaction in their care as well as greater participation in preventative care measures. Studies have also shown outcomes from CCM and RPM include fewer hospitalizations, lower HbA1c levels, and improved systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
