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 phase 1, we are designing a Personal Health Record Application PHR-A to assist with the following domains pertinent to diabetes self-management 1 nutritiondiet 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 and lab testing. Using information that the PHR-A receives on these self-management domains from the user s own monitoringjournaling devices that store data in a PHR called Microsoft HealthVault andor from the user s manual data entry directly into the servicePHR-A, the PHR-A 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. We are obtaining user and clinical responses to the PHR-A as we develop it. 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. A secondary outcome is diabetes-related distress.
