Efficacy of Structured Insulin Order
Efficacy of Structured Insulin Orders in Improving Glycemic Control

The purpose of this study is to determine whether an electronic order template for basal-bolus insulin will improve mean blood glucose in hospitalized general medical patients with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes.

The study randomly assigned internal medicine residents to use an electronic insulin order template plus basal-bolus ordering education versus education only. For all patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes treated by these physicians, mean blood glucose, rate of hypoglycemia, and rate of sliding scale insulin use were measured.
