The overarching goal of this study is to decrease disparities and increase access to continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for patients with diabetes, regardless of where people receive their diabetes care. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of three implementation strategies for CGM in primary care practices in an efficient, sustainable, and scalable fashion. The investigators will also perform economic analysis of the implementation strategies.
This 3-year study will compare practices that implement CGM with (a) an evidence-based educational module only, (b) an educational module plus practice facilitation support, or (c) a virtual CGM initiation clinic for patients. There will be up to 30 practices in each group for a possible total of 90 primary care practices. The investigators expect to enroll up to 500 patient participants across these 90 practices and to compare outcomes among patients from each study arm.
This comparison will help investigators to understand the different implementation strategies and their ability to help primary care practice adopt, implement, and maintain CGM for their patients. The information the investigators collect will also help to understand how patients in these primary care practices experience initiation and use of CGM. The results will help to develop strategies and tools to train more primary care practices to offer CGM more widely to patients for whom it is recommended, especially for those where access to specialty care is limited.
