Duke University Health System has selected Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System to elevate the quality and safety of care for patients with diabetes and others who require insulin therapy.
With national statistics indicating that one of every three hospitalized patients requires insulin therapy during their stay, administering the right dose at the right time in accordance with best practices is integral to safe, effective care and speedy recovery. By implementing Glytec’s FDA-cleared eGlycemic Management System (eGMS®) for personalized medication optimization, Duke Regional Hospital of Durham, North Carolina is equipping its staff with a proven and highly efficient means to individualize and standardize insulin therapy. Among the key benefits of eGMS® are helping prevent hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia while also rapidly
achieving and maintaining glycemic targets and reducing length of stay. The technology will integrate seamlessly with their Epic EMR.
“Although insulin is one of the most prescribed medications for hospitalized patients, the process of managing glucoses during an inpatient stay is complex. The Glytec system represents an important option for enhancing a patient’s response to insulin that, along with other clinical strategies, supports effective care approaches for patients with diabetes,” says Dr. Tracy L. Setji, Medical Director for Inpatient Endocrinology Consultation Services at Duke University Hospital and Duke Regional Hospital.
