  Who Should Attend?

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of managed care pharmacy directors, clinical pharmacists, quality directors, medical directors, members of the AMCP, and other managed health care professionals attending AMCP 2021 virtually.

  Statement of Need/Program Overview

Diabetes remains a leading cost driver for payers and employers, characterized by insulin spend, hospitalization, and ER utilization. System-wide incentives to prescribe and access real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rtCGM) aligns with a patient-centered approach for managing diabetes-related outcomes and costs.

Pharmacy benefit coverage and access for CGM for appropriate sub-populations can confer immediate cost savings via channel efficiencies and lower acquisition costs. Furthermore, rtCGM has the potential to improve diabetes-specific performance and outcome measures in members with type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

  Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate improved ability to:
  • Characterize the value of health technology and remote patient monitoring as part of a comprehensive management strategy for diabetes to improve glycemic outcomes
  • Discuss the positive impact of rtCGM pharmacy coverage on payer management interventions, provider administrative burden, member experience and access, and overall cost of care
  • Review the potential of rtCGM to improve diabetes performance measures via hypoglycemia risk reduction, improved HbA1c, and reduced resource utilization with case scenarios (e.g., pregnancy; senior populations)
