ADCES AANP Professional CGM Implementation Playbook


This newly updated toolkit will help you implement a professional CGM program within your health system. Professional CGM programs offer people with diabetes the ability to use CGM devices for short periods of time so both they and their diabetes care team can optimize diabetes self-management through user-generated data. The Professional CGM Playbook was developed in partnership with the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

Implementing a program within a healthcare setting offers many advantages including:

  • Greater utilization of CGM for people with diabetes who may be reluctant to use CGM but would nevertheless benefit from a comprehensive review of their personal glucose patterns and glycemic variability to better modify behavior.
  • Promotion of self-motivated, data-driven behavior change and improved clinical outcomes through alignment of medication with behavior change resulting in lowered long-term healthcare costs for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
  • Acceleration of the use of personal CGM by building a bridge to individuals who will see the value of the device via a controlled experience.
  • Development of a new revenue stream and sustainability mechanism for health systems and diabetes self-management education and support programs.
