A Guide to Prescribing the Right Diabetes Device for your Patients, with DiabetesWise Pro Developer Korey Hood, PhD

Published on: 

DiabetesWise Pro lets clinicians compare diabetes devices for a specific patient and provides the steps for ordering the device based on insurance type.

The DiabetesWise Pro website is an unbranded, unabiased tool for quick comparison of all the diabetes technology devices currently avaialable, from smart pens to insulin pumps.

The site allows clinicians to compare devices across basic details, such as affordability, data monitoring options, and vision/auditory/dexterity and then on patient considerations, such as active lifestyle, privacy, comfort, and need to avoid highs/lows.

Patient Care spoke recently with Stanford University professor Korey Hood, PhD, who led the Stanford team that developed the site. We aksed him to walk through a typical navigation path that a clinician might follow to compare diabetes devices, match a device to a specific patient, and initiate the prescription process.
