Abstract [en]

Background: Due to regional variations in diabetic care quality indicators, diabetes care in Sweden, still needs to undergo reforms. This research project aims to identify areas of improvement and to evaluate innovative health care technology in diabetes self-management using a multi-modal perspective.

Methods: A randomized controlled trial (RCT) to test person-centered diabetes mobile application is being planned. Persons with type1 and type 2 diabetes between 18-80 years of age will be enrolled. The persons will receive feedback on the application based on the monitoring parameters like blood glucose, insulin intake, diet, activity etc. There will be a backend web application at the health center, which can help monitor patient parameters remotely and will alert health care personnel when immediate response is required. The outcome measures would be HbA1C level and complications requiring hospital admission, and HRQoL. A qualitative study focusing on patients use and perception of the mobile application will be undertaken post RCT. The study is still in its early feasibility assessment phase.

Conclusion: Through individually tailored, diabetes self-management digital applications we intend to reduce complications related to uncontrolled blood glucose level.
