People with diabetes are increasingly using medical devices to help manage their condition, including devices for monitoring glucose and delivering insulin. However, healthcare professionals are finding that they cannot always access up to date information about a person with diabetes and the data from their medical devices. This makes it harder to provide the best advice and support.
The Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB) was commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement to produce two standards for sharing diabetes information between people and professionals across all care settings, including self management data from digital apps and medical devices (for example, continuous glucose monitors).
- The Diabetes Information Record Standard which defines the information needed to support a person’s diabetes management. It includes information that could be recorded by health and care professionals or the person themselves that is relevant to the diabetes care of the person and should be shared between different care providers.
- The Diabetes Self-Management Standard which defines information that could be recorded by the person (or their carer) at home (either using digital apps or medical devices) and shared with health and care professionals.
