The myriad are the manifestations and affectation of diabetes. About 25.8 million people in the U.S. – or 8.3% of the population – have diabetes today. By 2050, it’s projected that one in three U.S. adults could have it. In 2010, 285 million people worldwide had diabetes, with that number projected to increase to 438 million by 2030.
If not controlled, diabetes could cause serious complications on vital systems such as heart, kidney, nervous system, eyes, amongst others. Diabetes cost the U.S. $245 billion in 2012 alone. Cost of hospitalization for patients with diabetes was $10,937 in 2008 compared with $8,746 for patients without diabetes. We at Appex Innovation understand that for most patients with diabetes, a one-size-fits-all approach to managing diabetes doesn’t augur well. Patients are often prone to treatment and regimen adherence problems. Diabetes care analytics helps provide insights into patient’s past medical history and his respond to the treatment thereby providing accurate diagnosis and treatment solutions.
Why Diabetes Care Analytics?
Diabetes treatment needs to be customized for every patient as it depends on past genetic as well as personal medical history. The hidden patterns that lie beneath the terrain in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care of diabetes when unearthed via dimensional analyses, give us vital insights that are crucial to adequate and accurate treatment and follow up. From getting a glimpse of HbA1c levels vis-à-vis a given drug, TAT from symptom onset to diagnosis and follow-up to KPIs that capture cost incurred per patient, physician score carding, et all – our application caters to the entire spectrum of diabetes care. Various programmes like the DRP, MU as well as other regulatory measures are well supported by our application. While user friendliness makes it an easy to use tool, the depth and breadth it offers in the area of diabetes care makes it an invaluable companion to the clinical and research communities.
