iGlucose meets Remote Monitoring CPT Code standards

By Michael Johnsen - 05/03/2018
Smart Meter is helping to connect the dots between patient and provider around diabetes management through its iGlucose Diabetes Care Solution, which meets the requirements for the newly created Remote Monitoring CPT Code, as defined by Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Tampa, Fla.-based company announced.

“Our cell-enabled iGlucose System is a perfect solution for the person with diabetes and supports this CMS initiative and reimbursement opportunity,” Cliff McIntosh, CEO Smart Meter, said. “Cellular connectivity automatically sends blood glucose results in real time to a secure cloud and eliminates the need for unreliable Bluetooth syncing and pairing, which can be challenging for patients.”

The iGlucose solution, which uses cell-enabled technology to automatically transmit real-time blood glucose results, is providing clinicians with another tool for making connected health more available and more widely adopted, especially in support of chronic care management.

iGlucose is ready to use out-of-the-box, the company noted, and does not require smartphones, downloading apps, syncing technology, pairing with other devices or finding available WiFi networks. The real-time data and ability to communicate with patients provides clinicians with an active feedback loop (by way of text or email), enabling better, up-to-date recommendations, which is a core component of the connected health initiative.

The iGlucose cell-enabled diabetes blood glucose system allows test results to be shared with a Circle of Care that can include any number of select healthcare team members and personal caregivers. The iGlucose System was also recently approved for patient reimbursement through Medicare.

“We are excited to deliver an affordable, approved remote care management solution for clinicians to better monitor and manage patients,” McIntosh said. “The iGlucose Solution is easy to use for people with diabetes and our cell-enabled technology ensures that their data is secure, organized, and automatically recorded.  Reviewing real time bG results in iGlucose’s population management portal offers the clinician workplace efficiencies while fostering patient communication and connectivity.”
