How do I view patient data?

Once a patient has been added to the Patient list, click the patient name to invite them to share their data or choose to upload receiver data. Once sharing has initiated or receiver uploaded, click the patients name, then click Go to interative reports.

How do patients share data with my clinic?

If your clinic has a Dexcom CLARITY account, add the patient to your patient list, then click Share data to view, print, or email a share invitation. The patient enters the Sharing Code from the invitation in either their personal Dexcom CLARITY account or in their Dexcom CLARITY app. Once sharing is established, it continues until the patient or clinic decides to stop sharing and manually stops it within Dexcom CLARITY.

If your clinic does not have a Dexcom CLARITY account, patients can provide a share code generated from the Dexcom CLARITY app for your clinic to enter at https://clarity.dexcom.com/professional or you can guest upload a receiver from the same link.

What reports can I view in Dexcom CLARITY?

  • Patterns - dive deeper into each of the four clinically relevant patterns. Each pattern provides graphs of the days that contribute to that pattern.
  • Data - Trends and Overlay graphs show aggregate data with filtering options. Daily graphs are a detailed view of every glucose data point for each day selected.

What is Glucose Management Indicator (GMI)?

Glucose Management Indicator (GMI) approximates the laboratory A1C level expected based on average glucose measured using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) values. Average glucose is derived from at least 12 days of CGM data. The GMI may be similar to, higher than, or lower than the laboratory A1C. Differences between GMI and laboratory A1C may reflect differences among an individual’s red blood cell lifespan, how glucose binds to hemoglobin, or due to a recent fluctuation in glucose control.

How do I know when Dexcom CLARITY has been updated?

For every release, a notification banner is posted at the top of the Dexcom CLARITY on the day of the release. Follow the banner’s link to read the release notes. If the Uploader software is updated, the notification banner posts 2 weeks before the release.
