In the context of a randomized control study conducted over a 9-month period, we enrolled 48 patients in we a two-way SMS/text messaging coaching and education service designed to support patients with self care related to type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM. Patients were drawn for 16 primary care clinics in the Salt Lake Metropolitan Area of Utah, all of which had electronic medical records which could be queried at baseline, 90-days and 180-days to obtain clinical outcome data such as blood sugar control measures (HbA1c).
In addition, the SMS program requested periodic replies from patients regarding their blood sugar testing results. Approximately half (n=27) of the patients enrolled in the SMS program were frequent loggers who sent in glucose reports 2 times or more per week for at least 12 weeks. This data was stored in a Web-based portal accessible by the patient and study team.
To determine the congruency between self-reported data from a two way SMS-program for behavioral coaching and education related to Type 2 DM management and objective laboratory data reflecting blood sugar control over a 2-3 month period.
For this poster/presentation we will compare the congruency between patient-reported blood sugar trends logged into the system over a 90-180 day period with laboratory (HbA1c) data extracted from the patients’ medical record reflecting the same period. In addition, using qualitative data from patient interviews, we will offer insights as to why these two data sources may or may not be similar.
