Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Professional CGM

The only professional CGM designed for real-time feedback and insights.

What is Professional Real-Time CGM?

  • A practice-owned professional CGM device and sensors
  • Patients are placed on a professional CGM over a period of 7 days
  • Dynamic and comprehensive data is collected and shown to the patient, which aids in their understanding of the impact between behavior and glucose activity
  • Computer reports can be generated to help you assess your patient’s glucose patterns and assist you with therapy recommendations

 

What Makes the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Professional Real-Time CGM Unique?

  • Delivers a more dynamic and comprehensive picture of your patient’s glucose patterns with detailed reports that allow you to see your patients’ glycemic trends
  • Displays glucose readings every 5 minutes for up to 7 days for a full week of glucose trends
  • Shows patients rate and direction of glucose change in real time
  • Supports therapy adjustments made as a result of patients using Professional Real-Time CGM*

*A confirmatory fingerstick is required for treatment decisions.

How Dexcom Professional Real-Time CGM Can Make Sense for Your Practice

Real Time Feedback and Insights

Only real time provides you with a comprehensive picture of your patient’s glycemic variability that A1C alone or routine blood glucose testing cannot offer. Real time CGM not only takes advantage of patient learning opportunities in the moment, but also helps define the quality of an A1c.

 

Optimize Patient Therapy

There are many choices when it comes to prescribing a therapy regimen for your patients. Every patient is unique and what works for one may not work for another. Whether it’s short-acting insulin, long-acting insulin or insulin pumps, let Professional Real Time unveil what therapy works best for our patient.

Your office can bill for patient training and diabetes data collection and interpretation

Reporting Software

Managing diabetes can be complex. But with Dexcom CLARITY, diabetes data reporting and management are now made simple. Dexcom CLARITY’s simplified pattern summary page presents you with the five most important insights to help in the assessment of your health: highs, lows, daytime, nighttime and best day.

 

CGM not only measures blood glucose at a given moment in time; it also provides information essential for pattern management. The Dexcom STUDIO software allows the transfer of glucose data stored on the SEVEN® PLUS or Dexcom G4 PLATINUM into a computer. The software can easily be used by clinicians and patients to view and evaluate trends, track patterns, and identify areas where therapy adjustments may be necessary.

 

Below you will find the CLARITY Users Guide containing detailed instructions on uploading and viewing data, navigating through CLARITY, and downloading, printing and emailing reports. You will also find a helpful guide that outlines an approach to interpreting CGM reports, as well as a Quick Tour Guide highlighting the data each STUDIO report offers and how to customize the STUDIO software to the needs of your practice. Additionally, you can download the STUDIO Users Guide for more detailed instruction on downloading the STUDIO software, how to navigate through the software, importing and exporting data, and more.

Reimbursement

CGM has truly been a successful reimbursement story. There are established CPT codes for providers to get paid and broad coverage within the payer community. It is also important to note that the reimbursement landscape has changed significantly over the last several years. Many of the reimbursement challenges experienced by the early-adopters no longer exist and today’s reimbursement environment is extremely favorable.
