Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a prevalent chronic health condition globally, posing various complications and challenges for patients. In our healthcare facility, we encounter cases like John, a 50-year-old male undergoing prolonged DM treatment. Despite efforts, John experiences persistent high blood sugar levels due to genetic predisposition. This assessment extends the discussion from a previous assessment to explore healthcare technologies aiding John’s management and the potential benefits of care coordination and community resources in enhancing his health.

Impact of Healthcare Technologies on Type 2 DM

Recent advancements in healthcare technology have significantly benefited both healthcare providers and patients by improving safety, diagnosis, and consultation processes. Specifically for diabetes management, innovations like Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) devices offer advantages over traditional blood glucose monitoring methods. While CGM provides immediate and predictive glycemic data, it also presents challenges such as alarm disturbances and the need for calibration to ensure accuracy. Despite these drawbacks, CGM integration into professional practices shows promise in enhancing patient health outcomes, albeit with challenges like cost-effectiveness and education.

Use of Care Coordination and Community Resources

Effective care coordination, as defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), involves systematic planning and information sharing among healthcare providers to deliver patient-centered care. For chronic conditions like type 2 DM, care coordination, coupled with community resources, plays a vital role in enhancing patient outcomes. However, barriers such as geographical constraints and patient trust issues hinder optimal utilization of these resources. Overcoming these barriers, particularly through telehealth services, can significantly improve patient management and outcomes.

Nursing Practices Standards and Governmental Policies

Nursing practice standards, guided by ethical principles and evidence-based strategies, ensure quality care delivery to patients like John. Similarly, governmental policies like the 21st Century Cures Act and the Affordable Care Act support healthcare innovation, care coordination, and patient privacy, thus fostering improved patient outcomes and equitable healthcare access.


In conclusion, the management of type 2 DM requires a multidimensional approach encompassing technological innovations, care coordination, and community resources. By adhering to nursing practice standards and governmental policies, healthcare providers can ensure that patients like John receive comprehensive and effective care, ultimately leading to improved health outcomes.
