The Primary Care Innovations team are currently working with Glooko to trial diasend® in primary care. Diasend® is a cloud-based technology that downloads all blood glucose readings from a patient’s glucometer and is designed to work with 98% of all glucometers available in the current marketplace.
Having access to this data will allow clinicians to understand trends within blood glucose readings. This, in turn, can prompt tweaks to patients’ treatment plans, reviews of dietary intake and highlight areas where additional education may be helpful.
Heather Blair, has said: “We are very excited to be part of this trial. The
benefits of using this technology to view months of blood glucose data is a
huge improvement on what we have access to now. Our diabetes review clinics
will benefit greatly from this addition."
