The change from the traditional passive care and support of patient management to the use of telehealth was effective and led to 97 percent adherence to SBMG guidelines. For instance, whenever some patients received the follow-up call, they confirmed forgetting to do the blood glucose level monitoring, but did it at once and sent their readings and the actions taken to the follow-up nursing system. The process also improved adherence levels, even when the nurses did not follow-up, as many patients remembered and sent in their levels before the follow-up time. The nursing change process evidence is in line with previous research, including Lee, Greenfield and Pappas (2018) and Huang et al. (2015), which note the value of telehealth in diabetic patient management.
