Inside Health Care #76: Dr. Sally Friedman & the Call for Continuous Monitoring with Mealtime Insulin
March 30, 2022 · David J. Smolar
In this episode of “Inside Health Care”, we discuss the “hospital at home” health care model with two experts in remote care.
Dr. Sally Friedman is a chief endocrinology fellow in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Friedman is an expert in the use of “continuous glucose monitoring” in in-patient diabetes management. She’s been working on this topic with the Medical Learning Institute, which, in turn, is now working with NCQA on a continuing medical education program about diabetes and mealtime insulin. Dr. Friedman joins us today with an update on advances in “meal-time insulin monitoring” and the overall progress in diabetes treatment and self-monitoring of patients at home.
Following this interview, we talk with Dr. Eliza “Pippa” Shulman, Chief Medical Officer of Medically Home, the world’s first virtual hospital. Medically Home is a tech-enabled clinical enterprise that provides the necessary capabilities to safely shift medical care from hospitals to patients’ homes. Dr. Shulman will be one of our esteemed speakers at NCQA’s Quality Talks event, set for April 21, 2022. You can attend either online or live in Washington, DC.
