    Pearls/Pitfalls
    Why Use
    • Developed based on electronic health record data to inform population management interventions and therefore may have limited application in individual patients.
    • Validated in multiple external cohorts, including in a dataset using ICD10 codes, but has yet to be applied prospectively.
    • Iatrogenic hypoglycemia is a frequent adverse event in patients with type 2 diabetes, with 1 in 4 emergency hospitalizations for adverse drug events being related to hypoglycemia.
    • Helps identify highest risk patients, who might benefit from targeted interventions (e.g. simplified medication regimens, continuous glucose monitoring, addressing psychosocial and socioeconomic factors).
