1. AGP: An evidence-based system for sensor data interpretation
Roger S. Mazze
Ph.D. International Diabetes Center (USA)
Dr Roger S. Mazze is Senior Vice President of Park Nicollet Institute and Chief Academic Officer of the International Diabetes Center (IDC), where he has been based since 1988. He is also Head of the WHO Collaborating Center at the IDC and Mayo Clinic.
During his time at the IDC Dr Mazze developed Staged Diabetes Management (SDM), a systematic approach to the prevention, detection and management of diabetes and its complications. Currently, SDM is in use in more than 20 countries. He also built the WHO Technology Laboratory, which was the first to be devoted to advancing computer technologies in diabetes, and continues to develop the AGP as a common reporting structure for CGM. On-going work to create an automated AGP report, supported in part by the Helmsley Foundation, will enable clinicians and patients to have the ability to rapidly access CGM data for clinical decision-making, treatment efficacy assessment, and the measurement of short and long-term clinical outcomes.
A pioneer in the world of glucose monitoring, Dr Mazze has written extensively on SMBG and CGM, clinical decision-making, advanced insulin delivery systems, and algorithms for diabetes management. In recognition of these contributions he has served as visiting professor, most recently at Nanjing Medical University where he continues research with collaborators in areas of clinical care, prevention, diabetes in pregnancy and epidemiology. Dr Mazze has presented at national and international forums in more than 40 countries.
