Published on: 5 March 2024


Dexcom real-time Continuous Glucose Monitoring (rtCGM) systems can be quickly and easily prescribed through most electronic medical record (EMR) systems used in Canada. This allows healthcare providers to streamline their workflow while significantly improving the quality of care for people living with diabetes.

Dexcom rtCGM is clinically proven to help lower A1C, increase time in range, and lead to better glycemic outcomes for individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes1-5 —with no routine fingersticks or scanning.* 95% of endocrinologists agree that rtCGM, like Dexcom G7, is the standard of care for people living with type 1 diabetes.6

To help individuals better manage their condition, Dexcom rtCGM systems can be seamlessly prescribed through most EMRs used across Canada—now including TELUS Health EMR systems such as PS Suite.

EMR Improves Productivity, Efficiency, and Quality of Care

Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) provide a simple and fast way for healthcare providers to manage an individual’s personal health information, support patient care in person and remotely, and improve clinic workflow and processes. EMR systems are also the most efficient way to prescribe medications and healthcare tools, like Dexcom rtCGM.
