Key Points

· About one-third of patients with type 1 diabetes were found to use continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and/or continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) in routine clinical care.

· Disparities exist in CGM and CSII adoption, with device use more common in patients of higher socioeconomic status.

· Mining clinical narratives with natural language processing techniques can be applied successfully for medical device surveillance and cohort identification for observational studies.

· CGM use in conjunction with CSII after type 1 diabetes diagnosis is more effective than other therapy regimens and may translate to improved long-term glycemic control.
