JAMA Internal Medicine: Effect of a Comprehensive Telehealth Intervention vs Telemonitoring and Care Coordination in Patients with Persistently Poor Type 2 Diabetes Control

According to this study, a comprehensive approach to telemonitoring type 2 diabetes bolstered glucose control in tough-to-manage patients. The study found that, compared with telemonitoring/care coordination, comprehensive telehealth improved multiple outcomes in patients with persistently poorly controlled type 2 diabetes (PPDM) at a reasonable additional cost. This study supports consideration of comprehensive telehealth implementation for PPDM in systems with appropriate infrastructure and may enhance the value of telehealth experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
