Why Inpatient Glycemic Management Matters

Webinar

For decades, hospitals have relied on paper protocols or sliding scale insulin to determine the insulin regimen for patients while receiving acute care. While these methods may still be available, it doesn’t mean its use is aligned with best practice anymore. Hyperglycemia remains pervasive and hypoglycemia episodes occur far too often, negatively affecting outcomes of hospitalized patients.

During this webinar, Dr. Carlos Mendez discusses the evidence and best practices for achieving inpatient glycemic control, including the use of eGlycemic Management Systems (eGMS). Lisa Clement-Bryant of CaroMont Health then shares first-hand experience in implementing the EndoTool Glucose Management System and the outcomes they have achieved.

  • Determine what it would take for your organization to improve inpatient glycemic management
