Dexcom Dominates 2018 with Phenomenal Earnings

Dexcom, which was also a finalist for MDDI’s Medtech Company of the Year, just reported monumental earnings for 2018 despite growing competition in the continuous glucose monitoring market. “We achieved [$1.025] billion in revenue in 2018,” Kevin Sayer, president, CEO and chairman of Dexcom said. “That’s up 43% over what we did in 2017 and that’s over $300 million in growth in a single year for us. I can’t tell you how many things have to go right to make that happen, but a lot of them did.” By all accounts this just shouldn’t be the case. The San Diego-based company has faced significant competition and analysts saying the company could be severely impacted by new product launches in the space. In fact, in September of 2017 Dexcom shares plummeted when Abbott Laboratories gained FDA approval for the Freestyle Libre. Dexcom’s uphill battle was said to become even more arduous when its rival, Senseonics, (another finalist for MDDI  Medtech company of the year) received approval for a Eversense, an implantable long-term CGM system. Yet the company was able to beat the odds. Sayer said that part of its success came from the earlier-than-expected FDA approval of the G6 CGM System, a device that is interoperable with other automated insulin dosing systems. “Our outlook for 2...

CONCLUSION: Use of VR facility tours as an alternative to in-person tours of affiliate training facilities during a residency interview day is a viable and innovative option that can save time and money and favorably impact the applicant's impression of the program. More research is necessary to assess whether VR tours can replace in-person tours at the main teaching site, however, while social distancing measures are in place, VR tours may become necessary for programs moving forward.

Authors: Roberts V, Malone K, Moore P, Russell-Webster T, Caulfield R Abstract Our personal views about the challenges of continuing to deliver peer teaching during a pandemic. We are a group of 4th year medical students who are part of a student society which has delivered structured, highly formulaic peer-led teaching sessions for the past three years. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the reduced access to our normal clinical teaching highlighted the importance of peer-led teaching sessions. We wanted to continue with our peer-taught sessions but knew we would have to devise a new format to make our teaching accessi...
