Friday, February 3, 2017

FARMERS BRANCH, Texas – CCS Medical’s diabetes education program CCS Connects has been named a Diabetes Education Accreditation Program by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. CCS Connects uses health risk assessments and smart devices to collect real-time data, and also uses wireless glucose technology and clinical monitoring. CDEs interact with members every three months to provide ongoing education and coaching focused on nutrition, product training, behavioral changes and goal setting. "If we can increase high-risk member awareness to their condition, diagnosis and self-management principles, we can reduce diabetes-related ER visits and hospitalizations, resulting in reduced healthcare costs," said Kristine Erdman, vice president of clinical services for CCS Medical. CCS Medical is a mail provider of diabetes supplies, insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors, and wound care, urology, ostomy and other supplies.
