ALR Technologies to Integrate with CGM Platforms
ALRT Diabetes Solution is adding support for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems to the ALRT diabetes management platform.

ALRT Aims for Dramatic Improvements in the Standard of Care For Diabetes
The first-line approach to treating newly diagnosed diabetes is to concentrate on self-management through medication and lifestyle. This is successful when patients adhere to care plans. When self-management does not stop the progression of the disease, the focus of the treatment plan has to switch to optimizing medication using diabetes technology. The clinician needs to be fully engaged in timely intensification when results indicate that it is needed.

ALR Technologies Seeks FDA Approval For Insulin Dose Adjustment Feature for Better Diabetes Management
A first-in-class technology, the Insulin Dose Adjustment Consultation (IDAC) feature from ALRT uses an algorithm -- based on the guidelines of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) -- to advise doctors instantly on the proper dose of insulin for each patient. The algorithm takes into account the current insulin dosage, the patient’s height and weight, and a review of blood glucose data from the patient’s glucose meter to efficiently deliver accurate dosing recommendations. With FDA 510(k) clearance, IDAC will become an important addition to the Health-e-Connect remote diabetes care management system.
ALRT System May Help Providers Meet Chronic Care Management Reimbursement Requirements
An analysis from Avalere Health LLC, commissioned by ALRT, follows the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) establishment of a new reimbursement code for non-face-to-face chronic care management (CCM) with a payment rate of $42.60 per patient per month. This new payment is available to providers as of January 1, 2015, but only if they meet CMS’ extensive and complex requirements, according to Avalere. The ALRT system is designed to enable medical practices to meet these requirements while helping improve outcomes for patients with diabetes.
