By providing insulin dose adjustment recommendations to healthcare providers, Insulin Algorithms reduces diabetic blood sugar levels, lowers their healthcare costs & lessens their risks of complications.
Diabetes is a global problem, with 8.3% of the world suffering from the disease. With over 370 million diabetics world-wide, the costs of treating this disease and its complications is staggering. Studies estimate the world-wide costs to be over $410 billion, and in the USA the ADA calculates that the costs exceed $180 billion per year.
Diabetics taking insulin face a number of challenges. Their meter readings should be checked every month to adjust their insulin doses, but there aren’t enough trained doctors, nor do they have the time to do so. Thus, many diabetics go unmonitored, live with high blood sugars, develop complications, and suffer needlessly from their disease.
Our cloud based algorithms help healthcare professionals make informed decisions in adjusting their patient’s insulin regime. Primary care physicians, nurses, physicians assistants and pharmacists can now take on supporting the millions of patients taking insulin. Broadening access to insulin adjustments has proven an effective tool in lowering blood sugars and improving health outcomes.
Diabetes is a very complicated disease, the study of which is incomplete. Our algorithms are based on over 35 years of research by Dr. Mayer B. Davidson, a world-renowned endocrinologist a diabetes specialist. The algorithms have been in taught, written about, and used clinically for decades, with hundreds of doctors and nurses trained in their manual use.
