Developed by Partners HealthCare Connected Health and supported by Partners Population Health Management, Diabetes Connect is a turn-key service for practices to offer home monitoring services for their patients.
The program is being offered at primary care practices applying for NCQA recognition as patient centered medical homes.
Patients who are eligible for the program simply upload readings from their glucometer via a wireless communications device. Patients have their choice of almost any glucometer available on the market.
Diabetes Connect allows patients who may be newly diagnosed, starting new medication, or have elevated HbA1c levels to keep track of their health data and collaborate on a care plan between office visits. Via the electronic medical record, providers may view patient data based on time of day or trends over time, displayed in easy-to-read graphs or charts.
