Abstract Aims The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of text messaging as a tool to improve glycaemic control among newly diagnosed T2D patients in a 2 year period. Methods This is a multicentric, randomised controlled trial conducted in 2 states of India. The primary outcome was improvement in glycaemia measured by an HbA1c value of ≤7% (53 mmol/mol) with intervention. The secondary outcomes were changes in biochemical, dietary parameters and physical activity. Acceptability of text me...

BACKGROUND: Rural areas and refugee camps are characterized by poor access of patients to needed noncommunicable disease (NCD)-related health services, including diabetes and hypertension. Employing low-cost innovative eHealth interventions, such as mobile health (mHealth), may help improve NCDs prevention and control among disadvantaged populations. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the effect of employing low-cost mHealth tools on the accessibility to health services and improveme...

This paper aims at defining a new methodology to derive UX requirements for information systems intended for patient's empowerment. The method is a transformative process which starts from a contextual investigation meant to understand users, their behavior and capacities within a given community, and to identify potential improvements in their life quality, which are expressed in terms of human needs. The traditional iterative user-centered, participatory approach to usability requirement engin...

Over the past years, the importance of home-care treatments have been emphasized by governments, promoting the adoption of self-care management models, which may have positive effects on patient’s empowerment and on the overall healthcare system. In this context, polypharmacy management represents a major concern. A growing number of people are suffering from multiple chronic health conditions, which especially complicate the (self-) management of prescribed therapies, and puts a significant bur...

ObjectiveThe objective of this research is to determine the effects of mobile telehealth (MTH) on glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) and other clinical and patient-reported outcomes in insulin-requiring people with diabetes.MethodsA nine-month randomised, controlled trial compared standard care to standard care supplemented with MTH (self-monitoring, mobile-phone data transmissions, graphical and nurse-initiated feedback, and educational calls). Clinical (HbA1c, blood pressure, daily insulin dose,...

While mobile device receives increasing attention as a practical tool to remotely check patients’ health, little research has shed light on physicians’ acceptance of this information and communication technology. This study attempts to fill this research gap by examining how Japanese and Spanish physicians perceive a series of factors associated with mobile diabetes monitoring acceptance, and whether any differences exist in these perceptions between the countries due to different levels of phys...

Abstract Background: The use of mobile applications (“apps”) for diabetes management is a rapidly developing area and has relevance to adolescents who tend to be early technology adopters. Apps may be useful for supporting self-management or connecting young people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) with their peers. However, outside controlled trials testing the effectiveness of apps, little is known about app usage in this population. Our aim was to explore app usage among adolescents with T1D. Method...

Latinos are at increased risk for obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Well-designed information technology (IT) interventions have been shown to be generally efficacious in improving diabetes self-management. However, there are very few published IT intervention studies focused on Latinos. With the documented close of the digital divide, Latinos stand to benefit from such advances. There are limited studies on how best to address the unique socio-cultural-linguistic characteristics that would opt...

This paper reports from the halfway point in a longitudinal research project and reveals that digital engagement with a mobile tablet device empowers a person with diabetes in the self-management of their disease. Mobile tablet devices were issued to 28 people with type 2 diabetes at a large, integrated, primary, health care centre in Australia. Participants were invited to engage in various digital activities for the management of their health condition. During this time, plentiful and personal...
