A Study to Evaluate the Effect and Benefit of Diabetes Management Decision Support Software for Blood Glucose Control

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The benefit of drug therapy to persons with diabetes has been well established in clinical trials in terms of reducing cardiovascular risk, microvascular complications and mortality. However, treatment adherence and treatment effectiveness continue to be challenges in diabetes management.

Rimidi Diabetes has developed software algorithms to simulate the effect of anti-diabetic medications on an individual's glucose profile, allowing the clinician and their patient to visualize the anticipated outcome of a medical intervention. Use of this technology should allow for more targeted decision-making by the clinician and should facilitate a shared decision-making process with the PwD who is now privy to the thought process behind their medical management.

The proposed study is designed to test whether adding a decision support capability (Diabetes+Me Rx) that allows for modeling the anticipated effect of medication adjustments leads to improved glycemic control and a perceived benefit by healthcare providers and PwDs.

Description

- Recruitment

- Recruitment of persons with diabetes through a community diabetes management center according to inclusion and exclusion criteria below.

- This is a three-armed study. Enrollees will be randomized to continue diabetes care with standard diabetes management in the Medication Management Clinic or the Intervention Group and compared to a matched cohort managed through their primary care physician (PCP) and standard of care.

- The Intervention Group will be standard diabetes management in the Medication Management Clinic plus the use of Diabetes+Me with a connected glucometer.

- Upon recruitment, PwD will be oriented to the Diabetes+Me application and instructed on how to complete a glucose profile and how to enter data into the application. Baseline hemoglobin A1C will be measured.

- Enrollees will complete a brief survey of satisfaction with their diabetes management.

- Study visits

- The first study visit will be 2 weeks following enrollment.

- Weight, number of medications, number of medication titrations, the presence of insulin and blood pressure will be measured at each study visit. Frequency of hypoglycemia in the preceding week will be documented at each visit. Adherence to medical prescription to be documented at each visit.

- If the PwD has not entered data into Diabetes+Me this will be done at the beginning of each study visit.

- At the first study visit, the HCP will review the glucose profile from the previous week, identify areas where the PwD is not meeting targets and model adjustments to their medications to achieve the desired anticipated effect. If indicated, a new prescription will be issued and the PwD instructed to collect a new glucose profile the week preceding the next visit.

- The second study visit will occur 5 weeks following the initial visit. The HCP and PwD will review the glucose profile from the previous week, identify areas where the PwD is not meeting targets and model adjustments to their medications to achieve the desired anticipated effect. If indicated, a new prescription will be issued and the PwD instructed to collect a new glucose profile the week preceding the final visit.

The third and final study visit will occur 5 weeks following the second visit. The HCP and PwD will review the glucose profile from the previous week and identify if the PwD is meeting targets.

Assistance in managing and monitoring drug therapy for patients receiving treatment for cancer or chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes, consulting with patients and their families on the proper use of medication; conducting wellness and disease prevention programs to improve public health; overseeing medication use in a variety of settings.

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.
