AUSTIN, Texas — Diabetes technology, despite proven benefits for patients, comes with challenges for practitioners, including time commitment and low reimbursement, according to a presenter at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists Annual Scientific and Clinical Congress.

“It’s the best of times, but it’s also the most complicated of times,” Timothy Bailey, MD, FACE, CPI, director of AMCR Institute, California, and clinical associate professor at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, said during the presentation. “We’re having 100 times more data than most of us had when we started practice, and we need all kinds of software to sort out downloads from pumps, sensors and glucose meters.”
