Educational Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Outline and discuss the evidentiary basis for senor/patch-based CGM technologies, and how to best Implement CGM-based technologies into their overall diabetes care plans for persons with diabetes within the managed care environment
  • Analyze the rationale and evidence for pharmacists recommending and facilitating adoption of technology-centric CGM monitoring and treatment plans using patch-and-reader-based technologies in the managed care setting
  • Compare and contrast available CGM-facilitating monitoring technologies-including their inclusion as a pharmacy or medical benefit in a managed care setting-and pair such technologies with optimal patient profiles.
  • Discuss the foundational role and practical implementation perspective of sensor-based continuous glucose monitoring in the managed care setting to optimize clinical outcomes, target goal attainment, and comprehensive health metrics in persons across the diabetes spectrum, especially persons with Type 2 diabetes.
  • Discuss the rationale and practical aspects of applying new CGM technologies and capabilities-including improved device accuracy, alarm features, and integration into electronic health records (EHRs)-to managed care, with a special focus on all persons with diabetes, including those not on insulin therapy
