Abstract

In May 2015 the Diabetes Technology Society convened a panel of 27 experts in hospital medicine and endocrinology to discuss the current and potential future roles of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in delivering optimum health care to hospitalized patients in the United States. The panel focused on 3 potential settings for CGM in the hospital, including (1) the intensive care unit (ICU), (2) non-ICU, and (3) continuation of use of home CGM in the hospital. The group reviewed barriers to use and solutions to overcome the barriers. They concluded that CGM has the potential to improve the quality of patient care and can provide useful information to help health care providers learn more about glucose management. Widespread adoption of CGM by hospitals, however, has been limited by added costs and insufficient outcome data.
