The Dexcom CGM system is unique with the ability to connect with multiple digital health solutions. Combining CGM with digital health apps allows users to quickly see all their data in one place. Access to real-time data can empower people with diabetes and foster patient engagement with in-the-moment diabetes feedback and the opportunity for coaching.
The recently updated American Diabetes Association (ADA) Standards of Care (SOC) 20221 revised the technology recommendations focusing on use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). In addition, the ADA added digital health to the recommendations noting the opportunity for digital coaching as a tool for education. Join this webinar for a deep dive into the updated CGM technology SOC and learn about the current evidence that influenced recent changes. Diabetes technology is evolving rapidly, stay up to date with CGM to enhance your knowledge.

Key Takeaway: This toolkit provided by ADCES and AANP will help you implement a professional CGM program within your health system. Implementing a program within a healthcare setting offers many advantages, including: promotion of self-motivated, data-driven behavior change and improved clinical outcomes through alignment of medication with behavior change, resulting in lowered long-term healthcare costs for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Key Takeaway: In this podcast, Dr. Viral Shah and Dr. Janet McGill discuss the use of RT-CGM in the senior population. Topics discussed include benefits of RT-CGM, addressing barriers and improving utilization in seniors using technology, and clinical study outcomes.

In diverse and underserved populations research shows there are racial and ethnic disparities in diabetes outcomes. Disparities in diabetes technology use has the greatest influence on glycemic disparities between Black, Hispanic and Non-Hispanic White individuals. A study recently published in Diabetes Care found that lower socio-economic status was associated with lower rates of diabetes technology use and higher levels of A1C. Importantly, this gap in technology has widened over time. Data published from the T1D exchange, shows that across all age groups, individuals that use continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) have lower A1C levels compared to those who don’t use CGM.
This webinar will highlight the improvements in glycemic and psychosocial outcomes, along with best practices from recent research findings that support the use of CGM in diverse populations.
