Advanced Blood Sugar Settings Follow
Patient parameters (settings) are located in the Care Team Portal on the Patient Parameters page. This explains how to use advanced blood sugar settings. When the Advanced check box is not selected, only the Lower Boundary and Upper Boundary panels and boxes appear. A Care Team member typically selects the Advanced check box when a diabetic patient's blood sugar readings vary greatly and/or need closer monitoring. This is only applicable for the RPM/RPM+Video service level.
When the Advanced check box is selected, the following panels and boxes appear.

Applicable any time a patient enters a blood sugar reading as a random reading. This includes any time the patient selects the glucose meter icon to enter a reading when they are not completing a pathway, as well as if during a pathway they select Just a random reading after entering his blood sugar and confirming it.
This section defines the times to wait after a patient selects About to eat a meal when entering a blood sugar reading as part of their pathway.

Only applicable to the second reading a patient enters after entering a blood sugar reading as part of their health pathway when they enter About to eat a meal. When a patient is completing a pathway that contains a blood sugar biometric question, after entering and confirming their blood sugar, the patient is asked if they are about to eat a meal or do a random check.
A Care Team member typically selects the Advanced check box when a diabetic patient's blood sugar readings vary greatly and/or need closer monitoring.
If the patient enters a blood sugar value less than or equal to the value defined for the Medium Alert lower boundary, a medium alert appears on the Patient Monitoring tab. If the patient enters a value less than or equal to the value defined for the High Alert lower boundary, a high alert appears on the Patient Monitoring tab.
The settings are configurable. You cannot, however, turn off alarms by changing the settings.
