Riverside Medical Center in Kankakee, Ill., has selected the eGlycemic Management System from Glytec to help support its diabetes management program.

The eGlycemic platform will be integrated into the medical center's Epic EHR.

"The prevalence of both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia in hospitalized patients is increasing and is associated with higher mortality, increased cost of care and longer lengths of stay," said Michael Mutterer, senior vice president and CNO of RMC. "Insulin management and glycemic control are critical components of providing outstanding quality care for a large percentage of patients, which is why we recently chose to partner with Glytec."
