  28. 28. Patient Perspective <ul><li>What are some perspectives of diabetics of the usages of &quot;real time&quot; communication with their health care providers? </li></ul>
  29. 29. Patient Perspectives <ul><li>“ I meet my HCP in person only, he doesn't like it when I print out charts/logs anyways. Just looks at my meter.” (Type 1) </li></ul><ul><li>“ I find that my Carelink graphs completely overwhelm my HCP. Just this week she asked me if I could look at them myself and summarize” (Type 1) </li></ul><ul><li>“ My takes my pump and then pulls all the data thru the doctor's version of Carelink.” (Type 1) </li></ul><ul><li>My HCP is “not necessarily using online tools... More a matter of working with patients who use those resources, collaborate.” (Type 1) </li></ul>
  30. 30. Patient Perspectives <ul><li>“ Speeds up the whole appointment. Cal's HCP looks at things in advance and we breeze through it when we meet.” (Parent of Type 1) </li></ul><ul><li>“ I'd love to be able to email questions in between visits. Sometimes so much time goes by in between that I forget them.” (Type 1) </li></ul><ul><li>“ My HCP's office has someone who has job duty of monitoring patient online info & putting into files/charts/communications” </li></ul><ul><li>“ CDE's and RD's seem to be more open than the endos.” </li></ul>
  31. 31. Benefits and Challenges <ul><li>What are the benefits and challenges inherent in online communication tools for both the health care provider and the diabetic? </li></ul>
  32. 32. Benefits <ul><li>“ I actually think e-mail would let us say a lot more than we can squeeze into the back and forth of office appointments” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Easier, faster and more effective communication allows adjustments between appointments” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Benefit of emailing HCP is obvious - quick answers to brief questions” </li></ul>
  33. 33. Benefits <ul><li>“ I've emailed both WaveSense and DexCom reports in advance which leaves more time for my questions at appointment” </li></ul><ul><li>“ My doctors are connected via the internet. Foot doctor can log onto endo's site for my information” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I'd be more accountable with more frequent HCP communication” </li></ul>
  34. 34. Challenges <ul><li>“ Online doc/patient communications opens up unrealistic response time expectations, HIPPA issues, and issues regarding HCP billing for emails” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I can't stand the influx of email from the few people I work with. Imagine a ton of angry diabetic patients!” </li></ul><ul><li>“ My biggest challenge with online tools is that my HCP doesn't communicate electronically” </li></ul>
  35. 35. Challenges <ul><li>Reimbursement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ My HCP has said she'd be more willing to engage with e-patients if there was &quot;patient care&quot; time built in for reimbursing. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Will providers be reimbursed for e-communication and counseling? If not, it will be slow going.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ I mean, I'd love to be in more frequent communication. I wonder how much providers worry about getting paid for their advice.” </li></ul></ul>
  36. 36. Challenges <ul><li>Time </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Can say from experience that the amount of things for a HCP to do WITHOUT answering email is already staggering. Usually thousands of patients” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ My HCP has appointments so backed up he rarely checks e-mail. I don't see that happening with him at least.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ From HCP side, challenge is controlling the HUGE amount of information” </li></ul></ul>
  37. 37. Challenges <ul><li>Standardization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Standardization by far is the biggest deal. Some HCPs only like information presented in one way” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ The turn-around issue is a biggie. I expect a phone call back to acknowledge a voicemail within 24 hrs. What to expect from e-mail?” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ It would be nice to be able to email my HCP, but I can't. So even though I have great technology everyday, my HCP is behind” </li></ul></ul>
  38. 38. Challenges <ul><li>Privacy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ I think patients and healthcare providers worry about privacy issues.” </li></ul></ul>
  39. 39. Diabetes Online Community <ul><li>Where can diabetics and health care providers connect to continued diabetes education in the online diabetes network? </li></ul>
