A pilot program at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island is using remote patient monitoring to track blood sugar levels in pregnant people with gestational diabetes. The program utilizes Bluetooth-enabled glucose monitors that automatically upload results to the patient’s electronic health record. This allows the maternal-fetal medicine team to review the data in near real-time and make medication adjustments promptly. The program has shown promising results, including fewer blood sugar spikes, reduced risk of hypertension disorders, and lower risk of neonatal hyperglycemia. The success of the pilot may lead to expanding the program to other obstetric practices in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
