Abstract

Purpose: The efficacy of one remote monitoring system was reviewed in order to explore if optimal self-management of diabetes was achieved. Methods: Medical records of 214 patients with diabetes were reviewed from seven diabetes clinics within a single Health & Social Care trust using a remote monitoring solution to help patients self-manage their condition. Data on HbA1c, blood glucose, blood pressure and body mass index were obtained from the patient's medical record, before and after using the remote monitoring solution. Results: The average age of users was 61 years: 60% of the sample were male. The average time living with diabetes was 14 years; the mean duration with remote telemonitoring was 147 days. A greater reduction in HbA1c was seen with female users compared to males 2.37% and 0.87%, respectively. Conclusion: Remote telemonitoring provided the opportunity to collect comprehensive data, allowing patients to be maintained at home, while showing significant improvement in their HbA1c and better overall management of their diabetes
