Future of DSMES: Map and DEP close the loop in engagement. Barbara and Paul have a conversation how HI is responding to the requests from CDE’s

This blog is very special to me as I have the pleasure of interviewing my professional mentor, someone who makes my work easy and exciting: Paul Lasiuk, CEO of Healthy Interactions. The reason this is a good time to talk with Paul, is that Healthy Interactions as you know it, has transformed beyond just a Conversation Map enterprise. We are now a leading provider of integrated population health management solutions that improve patient outcomes and lower health care costs. I am happy to see this transition as it reflects the needs of healthcare providers like myself, adding digital and technology to further support the needs of people with diabetes and other conditions. Steve Jobs once said “It’s not faith in technology, it’s faith in people.”I can relate to that, as I am thinking what Healthy Interactions is doing today will impact the life of those with diabetes and healthcare providers.

Deborah Greenwood discusses technology enabled diabetes self-management solutions

Technology is now part of a new science within diabetes care. As diabetes educators, we are partnering with people with diabetes (PWD) to support their efforts in using the digital interventions. I am very excited about the first systematic review of systemic reviews evaluating the existing evidence and best practice while using technology in diabetes care and education. Deborah Greenwood, PhD, RN, BC-ADM, CDE, FAADE is one of the authors of "A Systematic Review of Reviews Evaluating Technology-Enabled Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support" that was published recently. This month, I am happy to share my conversation with Deborah about diabetes and technology.
