    Abstract

    :

    This paper presents an eHealth platform to support an emerging multidimensional care approach for the treatment of diabetes. This approach works by means of remote collection and monitoring of patient data and provision of personalized and customized feedback. The architecture of the platform extends the Internet of Things to a Web-centric paradigm through utilizing existing Web standards to access and control objects of the physical layer. Such support to self-management of diabetes enables real-time clinical interaction and feedback tailored to the personal needs of the patient, utilizing current and historical patient data. This provides a set of services for both patients and their caregivers that support the full continuum of the multidimensional care approach of diabetes. The platform’s software architecture pattern enables the development of various applications without knowing low-level details of the platform. A fully functional prototype is developed, and its end-to-end functionality and acceptability are tested successfully through a clinician-led pilot study, providing evidence that both patients and caregivers are receptive to the introduction of the proposed platform.
