Experimental: Intervention Arm
Patients will use the Vivify Health RPM protocol as part of their diabetes management. They required to complete the Care Plan questions on a daily basis, and will upload blood glucose readings directly to the tablet twice a day. They will also have scheduled video conferences with study team physicians or advanced practice nurses on a weekly basis, to discuss ongoing diabetes management and educational objectives.
Behavioral: Vivify Health RPM Protocol
The Vivify RPM Protocol includes a wireless tablet and glucometer/Bluetooth device that can directly upload blood glucose readings to the tablet. Patients will daily Care Plan questionnaires on the tablet, as well as upload blood glucose readings twice a day. The tablets will also be used for weekly video conferences with study investigators.
No Intervention: Control Arm
Patients in this arm will manage their diabetes at home per normal standard of care, without any extra intervention from the study investigators.
- Hemoglobin A1c [ Time Frame: 3 months ]To determine whether 12 weeks of participation in a remote monitoring protocol utilizing remote glucose data uploads and video visits through a mobile device improves glycemic control as measured by Hemoglobin A1c in adolescents with poorly controlled Type 1 Diabetes.
- Diabetes Knowledge Test 2 (DKT2) score [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
To determine whether 12 weeks of participation in a remote monitoring protocol can improve diabetes knowledge as assessed by a questionnaire in adolescents with poorly controlled Type 1 Diabetes.
The DKT2 contains 2 sections, with 23 questions total. The first section is general knowledge, and has 14 items. The second section is an insulin-use subscale, with 9 items. Higher scores are better for both sections.
- Self-Management of Type 1 Diabetes in Adolescence (SMOD-A) score [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
The first subscale (items 1-13) is Collaboration with Parents. Items 2 and 3 are reversed scored. The range of scores is 0 to 39. Higher scores indicate more collaboration.
The second subscale is Diabetes Care Activities (items 14-28). Items 16, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26 are reversed scored. The range is 0 to 45. Higher scores indicate better performance of diabetes tasks.
The third subscale is Diabetes Problem-Solving (items 29-35). Range of scores is 0 to 21. Higher scores indicate better problem-solving.
The fourth subscale is Diabetes Communication (items 36-45). The range of scores is 0 to 30. Higher scores indicate more communication.
The fifth subscale, Goals, is composed of items 1-7 of Part II of the instrument. The range of scores is 0 to 21. Higher scores indicate more goals.
Calculating a total score is not recommended.
- DKA Admission Rates [ Time Frame: 6 months ]To evaluate whether usage of the remote monitoring protocol affects hospital admission rates for adolescents with poorly controlled Type 1 Diabetes.
