TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Smart Meter, makers of the iGlucose cellular-connected blood glucose monitoring system, introduces a first of its kind automatic integration into PointClickCare's 21,000 skilled nursing facilities, senior living communities, and home health agencies. Facility care providers can now view patient blood glucose data in one electronic medical record (EMR) system, eliminate manual glucose data entry or uploading, and reduce errors when they use the iGlucose system during COVID-19.
PointClickCare, the #1 cloud-based EMR software used by over 60 percent of skilled nursing providers in the United States chose to collaborate with Smart Meter to capture real-time glucose results and to provide their customers a singular view of patient information which is of particular importance for remote patient management; a practice that has seen exponential growth as a result of desires to limit face to face patient interactions during COVID-19.
"Over 30 percent of our residents have diabetes," notes Clara Berry, Vice President of Clinical Services at Advanced Healthcare Solutions, LLC, headquartered in Arlington, Texas. "Since we initiated the use of the iGlucose system, our clinical providers have been excited to see the actual blood glucose results and trends for each patient in real-time, whether they are in the facility or working remotely. Now with PointClickCare enterprise-wide integration, all patient information is visible on one secure platform for a more complete patient profile that allows for improved diabetes control."
"Integration with PointClickCare elevates the iGlucose system to an entirely new level of implementation ease and standardization," says Brahim Zabelli, Smart Meter CEO. "The iGlucose meter has always immediately transmitted data to the iGlucose portal via AT&T's vast cellular network and now it seamlessly populates to the EMR resulting in one repository for all patient parameters."
Under recent Federal Drug Administration guidance, iGlucose meters can be used for individual patients residing in long-term care facilities during COVID-19. Benefits of using the iGlucose system include:
- Timely Patient Care: Quick identification of high/low glucose trends; physicians can remotely access patient results to take corrective measures.
- Cost Containment: Elimination of manual glucose result data entry and reduced meter disinfection cycles. One-click population management highlights where interventions are needed.
- Improved Workflow: No need for a docking station, cables, or Bluetooth® to transfer information to the EMR. The Smart Meter portal maintains activity logs suitable for billing remote patient management codes.
