Integrating ePRO with Glucometers: Electronic Capture of Blood Glucose Readings in Multinational Diabetes Populations

Event Date: April 23, 2013

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM, Eastern Daylight Time, US

In type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients, tight control of blood glucose levels reduces the risk of developing microvascular complications. Consistent glycemic control is critical for improving patient outcomes and avoiding diabetes-induced clinical sequelae.

One of the most important tools for maintaining glycemic control is the patient diary. Patient-reported outcome (PRO) and electronic PRO (ePRO) measures are standard tools for directly eliciting the patient experience for Clinical Outcome Assessments (COAs). Patient diaries are a key component for diabetes patients and their caregivers to monitor glycemic control and diet. Electronic PRO diaries and integration with glucometers shows significant advantages over paper diaries, including increased reliability and compliance, no illegible or missing data, and time/date-stamped entries.

This Webinar will review findings from multiple global diabetes programs to reveal how ePRO data via glucometer device integration:

• Obviates hypoglycemia underreporting and inaccuracies

• Generates blood glucose frequency data that conforms to a more Gaussian Distribution of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) than paper data

• Shows an incidence rate of hypoglycemia in ePRO trials with integrated glucometers that is in line with CGM

Who Should Attend
