BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 13, 2020--

T1D Exchange today announced that it will share data from ten abstracts, including six late breaking, focused on quality improvement, population health and real-world evidence and outcomes of people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 80 th Scientific Virtual Sessions. Two posters from the organization’s Quality Improvement Collaborative were recognized by healthcare information firm Close Concerns in its list of Top 50 Most Notable Posters.

“Following our recent evidence published in Diabetes Care on COVID-19 and T1D, we are excited to present additional compelling real-world evidence at ADA,” said David Walton, CEO of T1D Exchange. “From fear of hypoglycemia, to characteristics of CGM users, to inequities in health outcomes, we are proud of both the volume and diversity of abstract topics being presented.”

The ten abstracts being presented include findings and data from T1D Exchange’s Quality Improvement Collaborative, Online Registry and Outcomes Research teams.

“The Quality Improvement Collaborative was created to redefine best practices, enhance the quality of care and generate better outcomes for people living with type 1 diabetes. We are thrilled that our presentations have been recognized for their significance by the diabetes community,” said Osagie Ebekozien, Vice President of Population Health and Quality Improvement at T1D Exchange.

Quality Improvement Collaborative Study Highlights

Title: Improving Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Use Across National Centers: Results from the T1D Exchange Quality Improvement Collaborative (T1DX-QI)

Late Breaking Poster Session, Close Concerns Closer Look Notable Poster

Summary: While many studies have demonstrated the clinical benefit of the use of CGMs in T1D, and favorable insurance policy changes have gradually increased the access of CGMs nationally, widespread uptake has been slow. This study reports how ten diabetes centers used QI principles to test and expand different interventions to increase CGM use in their respective centers. Results demonstrate that by using QI principles to test interventions and cross-learning, the T1D community can increase the use of CGM devices.

Title: Increasing Insulin Pump Use across Five National Diabetes Centers: Results from the T1D Exchange Quality Improvement Collaborative

Date: Saturday, June 13, 2020

Summary: Several research studies have demonstrated the impact of insulin pump use and frequent insulin bolusing on diabetes-related clinical outcomes. Five centers used QI methodology to test and expand insulin pump use initiatives among patients aged 12 - 26 years. Successful interventions include developing mobile technology classes, redesigning workflow, coaching patients to bolus for meals and corrections, and removing barriers to adoption.

The centers shared data monthly with the coordinating office, and the data were used for ongoing QI coaching and to promote the cross-sharing of best practices. Results showed that successful QI interventions improved pump use.

Additional posters being presented on June 13, 2020, include:
