Abstract

Abstract Body

Translation of optimal diabetes outcomes from the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial and diabetes technology research to routine clinical care has been suboptimal. The Stanford Pediatric Diabetes Team designed, implemented, and iterated on a pragmatic research study: ‘Teamwork, Targets, Technology, and Tight Control (4T Program)’ with the goal of improving care after diagnosis of type 1 diabetes in pediatric patients. We hypothesized that early introduction of CGM and systematic education combined with reducing the friction of CGM analysis to allow for more timely education interventions and dose adjustments would result in improved glucose metrics and quality of life. Pilot study data will be reviewed as well as approaches to technical and financial challenges to scaling the 4T program to a larger patient population in our clinic and to share the 4T program with other diabetes centers. Future directions include systematically implementing automated insulin delivery, scaling the 4T project to a wider population within our clinic and in collaboration with external colleagues, incorporating an exercise education sub-study, and advocating for better insurance coverage for diabetes care for all.

Abstract

Abstract Body

Diabetes technology has improved quality of life, increased time-in-range, and decreased hypoglycemia over the past decade. Healthcare in the US is inequitable, including care for people with diabetes. Recent data on disparities in diabetes technology use and outcomes will be reviewed. Local and national efforts to improve access to diabetes technology and to improve outcomes with the goal or reducing socioeconomic disparities will be described.
