The Center for Information Technology Leadership (CITL), a nonprofit research center based at Partners HealthCare System in Boston, has published its research findings on the benefits, costs, and effectiveness of information technology-enabled diabetes management (ITDM) for patients with Type-2 diabetes.

According to CITL, the report, "The Value of Information Technology-Enabled Diabetes Management," concludes that ITDM can improve care processes, delay Type-2 diabetes complications, and save healthcare dollars.

Of existing technologies, CITL contends electronic diabetes registries used by providers, followed by clinical decision support systems (CDSS) for providers, showed the greatest improvement in clinical outcomes. In addition, electronic diabetes registries saved the most — $14.5 billion, says the company.
