Personal health application for adult diabetes self-management

Using existing technologies, the project team will develop a personal health application to help diabetes patients manage the care of their disease including nutrition, activity and physiological status (blood glucose). The project team has already developed a set of algorithms to aid in decision support for the care of diabetes. These algorithms will be combined with information from the current treatment regimen (using current and trended data) to recommend a course of action for the patient. This project has a heavy emphasis on end-user input from paid consultants (diagnosed with diabetes) who have previous relationships with the research team.
