iHealth Gluco Pro is a diabetes management application and clinical practice tool that helps Certified Diabetes Educators, (CDEs®) maintain a real-connection with their patients between visits. It allows patients with diabetes to share their blood sugar levels, physical activity, nutrition intake, and medication with their educator.
“Now CDEs® can help their patients where they need it the most – in the real world. Our patients are using mobile phones more than ever. This iHealth Gluco Pro App is a great way to interact with patients and interject snippets of information and coaching when it means the most to them.” Chuck Newcombe, MS, RD, CDE – Diabetes Expert and consultant with iHealth Labs
Pioneering CDEs® Needed – Stipend and Supplies included
Gluco Pro is looking for about 20 pioneering CDEs® that would like to evaluate the effectiveness of this innovative app in improving the patient – CDE® connection. The goal is to enroll 200 – 300 patients to evaluate the effectiveness of this innovative app. That means, each CDE® would need to enroll 10-15 patients.
There is a stipend for CDEs® and a Bluetooth meter with test strips for their patients using only iOS devices. With feedback from patients and CDEs®, the Human Factor Study will help determine the effectiveness of the app in real life setting.
