Abstract

Diabetes is chronic medical condition that has potentially serious health complications and puts huge pressure on existing medical services. This research will examine if a cloud-based system, called ¬°DiabetesCare, will aid patients and medical professionals in the management of this condition.

The system design was based on a survey of diabetics and background research. A sample group (n=7) used the system over a 3-week period and were then surveyed as to their findings.

The results were that the system was found to be beneficial and offers features that patients find useful. The results must be considered to be indicative, as the sample size was too small to be considered conclusive. More study in this area is warranted, especially with the full collaboration of the medical community.
