RPM for Diabetes

Managing Diabetes, Reducing Readmissions

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that around 422 million people globally suffer from diabetes, with 1.5 million deaths per year. In the US alone, the Diabetes Research Institute indicates that 28.7 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes, with a further 8.5 million yet to receive a diagnosis.

 

Wanda Health offers sophisticated and advanced RPM devices and virtual care monitoring through our intuitive platform, improving diabetes management and care planning for both patients and practitioners.

Why RPM for Diabetes?

Diabetes is one of the most common modern-day health conditions and is generally highly manageable with the right oversight and swift intervention when a patient requires urgent care to prevent a crisis. 

 

The real-time tracking of RPM provides practitioners, clinicians, and other healthcare professionals with the patient data necessary to provide effective and efficient diabetes management at a fraction of the cost of conventional and frequent face-to-face appointments and consultations.

 

Reducing the economic cost of treating diabetes is a prevalent focus, with $1 of each $4 of healthcare spending in the US associated with diabetes – amounting to roughly $237 billion a year on direct medical treatments and $90 billion in downtime or reduced workforce productivity.

 

RPM for diabetes makes tackling this condition streamlined, engaging, and simple, giving patients control over their health and offering an accessible way to prevent hospitalizations, intervene quickly when blood sugar readings are abnormal, and provide better long-term outcomes for patients.

The Benefits of Using RPM for Diabetes Management

The correct treatment plans and medications for diabetes vary depending on whether a patient presents with type 1 or type 2. Type 1 diabetes patients require daily insulin injections and, combined with a healthy lifestyle, can often manage their medication independently, provided they have the appropriate medical oversight to spot when a problem may be emerging.

 

Type 2 diabetes may affect other health indicators and is often managed with medication which can include insulin but may be better addressed with other alternatives.

 

In either scenario, effective condition management is essential, with around 17 million ED visits reported in 2018, primarily where patients experienced severe high or low blood sugar, which could have been prevented should the initial warning signs have flagged a dietary adjustment or the administration of medication to resolve the imbalance.

 

RPM is ideally suited to diabetes management, allowing healthcare professionals to communicate directly with their patients, discuss any variances in blood sugar readings and ensure their patients are confident with their insulin injections or understand the improvements made through lifestyle changes.

 

The early detection of unusual readings can effectively reduce ED admissions, more intrusive treatments, and even fatalities, with poorly managed diabetes potentially resulting in serious conditions such as kidney disease, loss of vision, loss of limbs, stroke, and heart disease.

 

By introducing RPM for diabetes, practitioners can deliver the highest standards of patient care, react when RPM data transmitted indicates a problem, and ensure care plans are personalized, updated, and relevant.

Who We Work With

Wanda Health supports a broad range of partners, including primary care organizations delivering care to large patient groups across local communities, private sector practices and hospitals, testing and diagnostic facilities, and research departments investigating new ways to better manage the significant volumes of patients diagnosed or admitted to hospital with diabetes each year. Our partners include:

  • Organizations engaged in diagnostics and testing, reviewing how patients respond to different medications, protocols, care plans, and combinations of treatments while using readings to provide high-level reporting and insights.

  • Hospitals, doctors, surgeries, and clinics in the public and private sectors, including those managing wide-scope data collation to help inform healthcare policy.

  • Post-hospital and post-care healthcare teams and community organizations leverage RPM to reduce the number of preventable readmissions, maintain open communications with post-discharge patients, and ensure their recovery and general health are improving.

  • Research teams and facilities accessing the accuracy of RPM data to analyze patient outcomes and document progress in the effective long-term management of the condition.

 

We are pleased to offer complimentary demos to showcase how the virtual care platform works, how our RPM devices for diabetes management operate, and how practitioners and patients can use our digital platform to improve their experiences and outcomes.

Our Devices

Wanda Health supports a comprehensive selection of high-specificity RPM devices, all aligned with the monitoring needs of COPD doctors and medical professionals. Devices are user-friendly, extremely accurate, and automated without requiring complex patient usage instructions.

GLUCOMETERS

Glucose monitoring is essential for the care of patients with diabetes and measures blood sugar levels accurately using a simple testing strip and a single drop of blood. Each RPM device comes complete with testing strips, a carry case, lancets, and all the accessories necessary for correct use.

WEIGHT SCALES

Type 2 diabetes is intrinsically connected with lifestyle factors, with patients with a high BMI or clinically diagnosed obesity at a significantly increased risk. Excess weight contributes to resistance to natural insulin hormones, and weight management can be a powerful tool to empower patients to control their condition.

PULSE OXIMETERS

Tracking blood oxygen ensures medical professionals can identify when patients with diabetes are at risk of complications, with hypoxia – or low blood oxygen saturation – a potential progression that can be treated if necessary.

BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORS 

Diabetes and blood pressure are commonly associated, with the potential for elevated blood pressure caused by long-term kidney damage, increasing the levels of water and salt retention. Regular blood pressure monitoring is essential to manage and reduce dangerously high blood pressure.

Many practitioners and hospitals choose to deploy two or potentially more devices to the same patient, providing them with comprehensive data and vital sign monitoring to make informed decisions about necessary changes to the patient care plan or to intervene if required.

 

Patients can see their readings, access changes through their patient portal, and use this knowledge to continue making lifestyle or dietary adjustments as their practitioner recommends to prevent diabetes from escalating.
