Informed Action

Informed therapeutic action through pattern management.

Pattern management is the systematic interpretation of structured SMBG measurements to identify glycaemic patterns and then taking appropriate action based upon those results.18

Translating unstructured blood glucose values into meaningful information…

From this...

To this...

The pattern management approach helps healthcare professionals and their patients maximize every blood glucose value by providing a structure and method to identify and discuss the timing, frequency and causes for out-of-target blood glucose values.

  • Supports informed therapeutic action by providing the data to substantiate a decision6 , 39 and increasing confidence in determining factors that can influence glycaemic control
  • Encourages patient self-discovery and a better understanding of glucose-impacting behaviours and activities38
  • Reinforces behaviour changes with regard to lifestyle choices that can lead to better outcomes.
