|Statement of Need/Program Overview|
The true impact of diabetes-related severe hypoglycemia (SH) events is often underestimated by payers, with only approximately 5% of self-reported events among pharmacologically treated patients being captured by health care utilization-based surveillance. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) represents a significant advancement in the precision management of type 2 diabetes (T2D), providing members from diverse demographics, including minority populations, with the ability to receive a virtually uninterrupted stream of information about the current physiology of their disease. However, many providers cite that prior authorizations may delay treatment and negatively impact clinical outcomes. A smart edit featuring an automated look back in claims data for a previous insulin prescription can be used as the criterion for approval with real-time adjudication, easing the administrative burden for payers and providers and streamlining access for members. This approach serves as a basic blueprint for payers to apply the latest evidence in advancing T2D management with optimal outcomes and cost reduction.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate improved ability to:
