DURHAM, N.C. – Dexcom CGM data from its cloud application program interface is now integrated into the Validic data connectivity platform—establishing a multi-measure platform that streams in-home clinical data directly into clinical workflows and systems.
“The availability of continuous data offers health care practitioners new opportunities to deliver proactive care and take steps to prevent negative health events or readmissions,” said Drew Schiller, CEO of Validic, in a statement. “To effectively manage the health of a growing population with chronic diseases, data-driven care delivery is critical, and these data must be integrated into the clinical workflow in order to facilitate clinician adoption and the best outcomes for patients.”
Continuous glucose data—in conjunction with other biometric data from patients’ wearables, health apps and in-home medical devices—can offer a holistic view of patient health, resulting in more informed, proactive care decisions, the companies say.
To accommodate complex, high-frequency PGHD like that from CGMs within the Validic platform, the company developed a proprietary intraday data model to support standardization and delivery. The model allows high-frequency data to appear in the stream in near real-time—making Dexcom CGM data available every five minutes. Providers will be able to access their patients’ home health information quickly within their current systems and correlate data to understand not only what is happening, but also why it is happening.
Validic Inform, launched a year ago, is the company’s data connectivity platform with near real-time streaming capabilities. It enables the programming of triggered alerts and notifications to better manage program adherence and engagement. Data from the Dexcom G5 and G6 mobile apps—as well as contextual data like insulin, periods of activity and carbohydrate consumption manually uploaded from a receiver using the Dexcom CLARITY uploader—will be integrated into the Validic platform.
The partnership is part of a larger effort to improve the interoperability of clinical systems and provide better access to continuous data in order to deliver improved patient care, Schiller said.
