Brief Summary:
To compare Diabetes Telemonitoring to comprehensive outpatient management (COM) on critical patient-centered outcomes, including HbA1c.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 Diabetes Other: Comprehensive Outpatient Management Behavioral: Diabetes Telemonitoring Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The investigators propose a multiphase mixed method, Comparative Effectiveness Research Randomized Control Trial (CER RCT) to:

Specific Aim 1: Assess usability of an evidence-based DTM intervention utilizing a Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) approach and adapt it to facilitate acceptability and feasibility in a population of H/L patients with T2D, and their caregivers and providers.

Specific Aim 2: Assess whether H/L patients receiving DTM attain significantly improved patient-centered outcomes compared to COM, through a CER RCT. Expected outcomes include improved diabetes quality of life (QoL), glucose management (GM), blood pressure (BP), cholesterol, medication adherence, and diabetes self-efficacy (SE), and reduced diabetes distress, problem areas in diabetes (PAID), inpatient utilization, unscheduled T2D physician visits and sick days.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Diabetes Telemonitoring (DTM)
Diabetes Telehealth Management (DTM), based on the 2018 ADA Standards for Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), uses smart devices to share information between patients, caregivers, and clinicians. DTM includes:1) weekly real time "virtual" visit between patient and clinician 2) vital signs monitoring/interpretation 3) diabetes management 4) patient interactive educational videos and "teach back" quizzes, reinforcing self-management strategies 5) a caregiver app with supportive capability.
Behavioral: Diabetes Telemonitoring
Diabetes Telehealth Management (DTM), based on the 2018 ADA Standards for T2D, uses smart devices to share information between patients, caregivers, and clinicians.
Other Name: DTM

Active Comparator: Comprehensive Outpatient Management (COM)
Comprehensive Outpatient Management (COM) is the most realistic evidence-based comparator, in that it is the most frequently recommended and used option for US T2D patients. COM, like DTM, is consistent with the 2018 American Diabetes Association (ADA) Standards which include, but are not limited to, past medical and family history, social history, medications, screening, physical examination, laboratory evaluation, etc.Patients are instructed to monitor blood glucose (within physician recommendations), and have routine or "well" visits every 3 months. Patients can set appointments with a T2D educator. COM patients will receive monthly calls from the study Registered Nurse (RN) to collect data.
Other: Comprehensive Outpatient Management
Patients receiving comprehensive outpatient management experience typical care received in the outpatient setting.
Other Name: COM

  5. PAID [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

  8. Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

  9. Diabetes Quality of life [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Diabetes-39 is a validated instrument specifically designed to measure quality of life for diabetes patients
