INDIANAPOLIS — In this video exclusive, Endocrine Today Diabetes in Real Life columnist Susan Weiner, MS, RDN, CDE, CDN, discusses telehealth with Deborah A. Greenwood, PhD, RN, BC-ADM, CDE, FAADE, 2015 AADE president and currently chief digital research officer for diabetes for Mytonomy. “Telehealth” is a broad term referring to everything from traditional telemedicine consultations that occur face-to-face in real time, to remote monitoring of data used to make health decisions, to newer digital apps connecting people to coaches. Greenwood and colleagues performed a systematic review of technology-enabled diabetes self-management studies conducted from 2011 to 2017. They found that mobile technology use was associated with decreased HbA1c when it incorporated four key elements: using two-way communication, incorporating patient-generated data, then tailoring education to the patient, and providing feedback to inform changes in behavior, Greenwood said.
