An important goal for Diabeter is to optimize the outcome for every person with diabetes, and minimize the burden of the disease. Our use of an electronic disease management system developed in-house (VCare) for over 15 years means that we have collected a vast amount of data, as well as experience. Rigorous scientific analyses of our datasets makes it possible for us to identify factors associated with better outcomes, and improve the care that we deliver.
As new medicines and new technologies enter the real world, we can make use of the VCare system to continually evaluate their impact on the management of type 1 diabetes. We can provide useful data on usability, efficacy, safety, and cost-effectiveness.
Our work in the field of outcomes research has included:
Through research such as this, we can help refine and optimize treatment and its outcomes, developing the most appropriate personalized care for each person with diabetes. You can find our projects on these topics by clicking here or on the Projects button.
