Are you interested in learning more about using professional continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in your practice? Join us as we apply the new Association of Diabetes Care and Education Specialists, Identify, Configure, Collaborate Framework to systematically leverage technology. First, we will identify key assessments, planning and process requirements to start a professional CGM program. Then, we will configure the essential tools, workflows and training requirements. Finally, we’ll collaborate with the care team to evaluate program success and with the person with diabetes on the use of their CGM data to learn about their glucose patterns and trends. Dexcom G6 Professional CGM is a powerful tool that can unlock valuable insights in real-time with the Dexcom G6 App (in unblinded mode) and retrospectively with the Dexcom CLARITY Pro report.

The Power of Healthcare Systems to Deliver Guideline-Recommended Care for AFib Stroke Risk Reduction
Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. ET
Anne Marie Smith, M.B.A., Vice President of Practice Improvement for Heart Rhythm Society;
Julia Andrieni, M.D., FACP, Senior Vice President, Population Health and Primary Care, President & CEO, Houston Methodist Coordinated Care ACO; and Mahesh Amin, M.D., Medical Director, CV Service Line, BayCare Health System/BayCare Medical Group
The impact of COVID-19 on healthcare delivery has heightened the need to apply innovative approaches and technology to help evolve patient care. During the pandemic, many patients with chronic conditions defer routine care and may be slow to follow up on new symptoms which may lead to negative patient outcomes.
Learn directly from the Heart Rhythm Society and two advanced healthcare system leaders about the systematic processes they implemented to identify at risk patients, reduce unwanted care variability and ensure guideline-based management, which may improve patient outcomes and system efficiencies.
The examples provide attendees with an understanding of how gaps in care may be identified and solutions are prioritized, developed, and implemented. Leaders will also share some of the associated challenges encountered when initiating solutions within their health systems. Topics include examples of the identification of patients with moderate-to-high risk of stroke who may not be treated to guidelines, EMR optimization to help identify patients, and examples of appropriate follow up.
