Abstract : The overarching vision of this project is to help people with diabetes better manage their condition by providing them with a tool that will make self-management less confusing, less stressful, and less constrained. This is a two-phase project. In phase1, we designed an Internet-based and mobile application (software) to assist with the following domains pertinent to diabetes self-management: 1) nutrition/diet (healthy eating) 2) physical activity (being active); 3) blood glucose (self-monitoring); 4)medications (tracking and adherence only); 5) outlook and beliefs; and 6) reducing risks through recommended medical visits, lab testing. Although not a primary focus, the application also addresses weight management and loss. The application is called Tracking My Diabetes (TMD). Using information that TMD receives on these self-management domains (from the user's own monitoring/journaling devices that store data in Microsoft HealthVault and/or from the users manual data entry directly into TMD), TMD analyzes, interprets, provides feedback, and makes recommendations bolstered by educational content on diabetes self-management. All of the feedback and recommendations are focused on lifestyle. Some feedback provides information on the relationships among the various self-care domains. In phase 2, the project is conducting a brief pilot study of the clinical efficacy of the PHR-A in people with diabetes. The main outcome is glycemic control.
