M2DM

Multi Access Services for Telematic Management of Diabetes Mellitus
 

Objectives

This project intends to provide a sustainable service care to residential and mobile diabetic patients aiming to increase the quality of patient's care through improving communication between patients and caregivers. M2DM incorporates new telemedicine services that emphasise the provision of personal health services 24 hours a day and provides new means to information access to physicians and patients. A Multi-Access Server (MAS) is defined in the project comprising a full range of non-expensive and widely accepted information technologies offering to users a universal, easy-to-use, on-line and cost-effective access to telemedicine and information services. M2DM provides the capability of effectively managing the knowledge necessary for the complex and distributed process of chronic disease care, providing technological instruments and infrastructures to give the right knowledge to the right people in the right form at the right time.

Description of the work

M2DM aims at providing diabetic patients and health care providers with a Multi-Access service with the goal of increasing the quality of care through improving communication between patients and caregivers. A Multi-Access Server has been defined in the project,
comprising a full range of non-expensive and widely accepted information technologies, offering to users a universal, easy-to-use, on-line and cost-effective access to telemedicine and information services. This server is based on Computer Telephony Interfaces and Web-based technology. A distinguished feature of M2DM is its capability of managing the knowledge necessary for Diabetes Management; its final goal is therefore be the provision of the right knowledge to the right people at the right time. Several advanced methods for data analysis, evidence and knowledge pooling and knowledge management have been investigated in the project, and finally integrated in the Multi-Access services. Moreover, the services have been customized to meet the needs of final users by exploiting the knowledge management approach studied in the project. M2DM comprises both technical and clinical partners that participate in the design and development of the overall system.
