Terry Gregg, CEO, Dexcom, reviews some of the data that he has seen on the healthcare cost savings that continuous glucose monitoring technology can bring. Much of this comes from preventing hypoglycemic episodes that can result in an average hospital stay bill of around $17.000. But he also mentions that some cost savings, such as preventing accidents where people were driving impaired from a hypoglycemic episode, are more difficult to quantify.
