By providing insulin dose adjustment recommendations to healthcare providers, Insulin Algorithms reduces diabetic blood sugar levels, lowers healthcare costs and lessens the risk of diabetes-related complications.
Diabetes is a global problem that affects 8.3% percent of the world’s population. With more than 380 million diabetics worldwide, the costs of treating the disease and its complications are staggering. The International Diabetes Federation reported that annual global costs reached $548 billion in 2013, and the American Diabetes Association found that in the United States, the direct and indirect costs of diabetes exceed $180 billion per year.
Insulin has proven to be effective at lowering blood sugar levels and improving health outcomes for diabetics, and those taking insulin should have their blood glucose meter readings checked every month to ensure that proper dosage adjustments are made. However, most healthcare professionals lack the training and the time necessary to provide this care for the millions of people who need it. Many diabetics go unmonitored as a result, and instead live with high blood sugar levels that cause debilitating and costly health complications.
Insulin Algorithms software uses our cloud-based algorithms to analyze blood glucose meter readings and provide insulin dosage recommendations to healthcare professionals. Primary care physicians, nurses, physician assistants and pharmacists can now make informed adjustments to insulin regimens, which will improve health outcomes and lower healthcare costs for millions of diabetics.
Our algorithms are based on more than 35 years of research by Dr. Mayer B. Davidson, a world-renowned endocrinologist and diabetes specialist who served as President of the American Diabetes Association. The algorithms are proven to significantly lower blood sugar levels, and they have been taught, published and used clinically for decades by hundreds of doctors and nurses trained in their manual use.
