Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery."
Saturday, June 14: Carlos Mendez, MD, director of the diabetes
management center, at Albany VA Medical Center will present "Daily

Costs, Resource Utilization, and Clinical Outcome in Patients
Undergoing CABG Receiving Intensive vs. Conservative Glucose Control"
will take place during the Late Breaking Poster Session.
"Glytec's eGMS is an example of how advanced clinical information
technology is currently being employed to improve healthcare, from both
the patient and the operational perspectives," says Laurel Fuqua, RN,
Chief Clinical Innovation Officer at Glytec. "The sessions and exhibits
at this year's ADA Scientific Sessions can help healthcare providers
become more familiar with leading-edge research, products and services
that offer the promise of helping to alleviate pressures they now face
in terms of patient care, staffing and cost containment. There are
several presentations at this year's ADA meeting showcasing the
importance of inpatient glycemic management in improving the health
status of people with diabetes who are hospitalized. We are excited that
Glytec had many abstracts, posters and presentations accepted. And we're
proud of how they highlight research results using our inpatient
system," says Fuqua.
