Glytec Releases New Innovations for Inpatient Insulin Therapy, Further Uniting Teams Around Patient Safety
Glytec, the only provider of insulin management software across the continuum of care, today introduced the latest version of its eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS), including enhancements and new integrations that reduce workflow friction for clinicians and further improve patient safety. These enhancements were developed in close collaboration with Glytec's customers. More than 300 hospitals rely on Glytec to provide personalized dosing recommendations for the 38% of hospitalized patients - including those with and without diabetes - with hyperglycemia who require insulin therapy during their stay.
Glytec's evidenced-based, FDA-cleared algorithm, Glucommander™, is the centerpiece of its eGMS and leverages real-time and historical data to recommend insulin dosing by learning each patient's insulin sensitivity and anticipating future needs. Unlike paper protocols, sliding scale methods and digital insulin calculators, this results in a personalized treatment regimen that is proven to deliver dramatic reductions in hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, lengths of stay, readmissions and cost of care.
To date, more than 90 research studies have validated the safety and efficacy of Glytec's insulin management software. With Glucommander's 18.104.22.168 Medication Confirmation and Order Integration release, Glytec is introducing enhancements and integrations that expand on and strengthen the company's 15-year commitment to innovation and patient safety with new features. These features include:
"For the past 15 years, Glytec has been at the forefront of developing computer-guided algorithms that make personalized insulin dosing possible. These latest enhancements are just the most recent example of our ongoing commitment to patient safety and improving nursing workflows. Our 22.214.171.124 release includes many enhancements that we can directly attribute to feedback we've received by carefully listening to the doctors, nurses, pharmacists and administrators at hospitals across the country who use our platform," said John Downey, Chief Commercial Officer, at Glytec. "With evidence indicating a strong association between timely and accurate glucose management, improved outcomes and lower costs we are finding that health systems are already showing an increasing interest in Glucommander. With these important new innovations we expect that adoption will expand even more rapidly."
In addition to new medication confirmation and order integration features, this release also includes interface enhancements and out-of-the-box support for newer treatment options.
