Top 10 reasons blog

When someone questions, “why EndoTool?” Hit them with a fact sheet. You can’t argue with facts.

10. Confidence in Outcomes – EndoTool is the market leader for safe glucose management for hospitalized patients, and is trusted by more than 180 hospitals in the United States.

9. Simple Process – Once a facility begins using EndoTool, nurses follow a simple three step process for safe dose recommendations. The process is easily completed through bedside computer.

8. EMR Integration – EndoTool has seamless integration with most major electronic medical records including: EPIC, Allscripts, Cerner, and Meditech.

7. Customized System Parameters – Parameters may be customized for each facility and/or unit, eliminating the need for repetitive approval of the medical director, and providing caregivers more time to focus on direct patient care.

6. Transition: IV to SubQ – Using clinically driven protocols, EndoTool notifies the clinician when a patient has reached an optimal time for safe transition from IV to subcutaneous insulin therapy.

5. Personalized Treatment – Insulin dose recommendations are based on unique patient parameters: blood glucose level, Diabetes Mellitus (DM) type, age, sex, weight, sCr, eGFR, steroids, and any estimated residual extracellular insulin (EREI).

4. EREI Calculation – Estimated Residual Extracellular Insulin (EREI) accounts for previously administered insulin and is factored into next insulin dose recommendations. Similar to the concept of “insulin on board” for subcutaneous insulin therapy — but instead, EREI is used during intravenous therapy.

3. Specialize in the “Difficult” – Even in the most difficult patient scenarios (DKA, HNS, etc.), EndoTool provides a safe and efficient solution for glucose management with 99.4% of all patients achieving control.

2. Eliminate Hypoglycemia – EndoTool achieves a 0.016% rate of hypoglycemia with blood glucose readings less than 40 mg/dL and a 0.368% rate of hypoglycemia with blood glucose readings less than 70 mg/dL.

1. Safest Solution – More than 60 combined algorithms ensure that dosing is individualized and responsive to ongoing changes in each patient’s unique physiological response.
