Target Audience
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of managed care pharmacy directors, registered nurses, clinical pharmacists, quality directors and medical directors.

Statement of Need/Program Overview
Backed by a growing body of clinical evidence and expert recommendations, the role of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in managed care has expanded rapidly in recent years. In addition to improving glycemic control and reducing hypoglycemic risk, CGM has demonstrated the potential to enhance patient engagement and self-management with associated reductions in resource utilization and medication use. As managed care professionals remain mindful of evolving quality measures and a wide array of treatment options, CGM represents a complimentary intervention for integration in comprehensive programming. This symposium will feature a PayerTalkCE format with the faculty discussing the latest trends and opportunities for CGM in high-quality, cost-effective diabetes disease management.
