CHDR Diabetes Telehealth Project (TACM-2)

Technology-Assisted Case Management (TACM-2)

Using a combination of nurse case management and remote patient monitoring, the TACM-2 program helps patients with uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes improve their glycemic and blood pressure control in a practical and sustainable way.

Using a telehealth monitoring device, TACM-2 participants are provided materials to test their blood glucose and blood pressure levels on a daily basis. These daily readings are automatically uploaded and to a secure server, which the TACM-2 case managers can access in real time.

The advantages of using this model include:

  • Accurate and timely data transfer, for quicker decision-making
  • Enhanced patient adherence due to direct feedback provided by case managers
  • Opportunities to adjust medications bimonthly.

Benefits from the program include:

  • Enhancing the efficiency of care
  • Implementing effective treatment plans
  • Generating sustained improvements in glycemic control
  • Decreasing the morbidity, as well as early mortality, associated with Type 2 diabetes
  • Significant reductions in overall health care costs

To date, 13 sites comprised of 28 different clinics are participating in the TACM-2 program. Over 600 patients are currently enrolled in the program.
