Abstract Text

Regular physical activity, timely medication, controlled diet, and blood glucose monitoring is crucial for any diabetic patient. Laxity on following these treatment regimens can cause severe health complexity. Moreover, A physician’s surveillance on a patient, based on the patient’s real-time progress is difficult with the existing health care system. This research aims to provide a more accurate objective data in real-time to the physicians to help both patients and providers. The data being generated is mined later to investigate interesting questions regarding diabetic care. The resultant system is a mobile healthcare monitoring system for type – 2 diabetic patients that traces patients daily progress. Although many mobile apps provide self-monitoring tools for the patient, an interactive platform for monitoring all relevant parameters of diabetes where patients and physicians both are end users is unique. The Android app is designed with 3 major modules and two submodules: 1. Carb Intake Tracker (CIT), 2. Blood Glucose Tracker (BGT), 3. Physical Activity Tracker (PAT), 4. Medicine and 5. Blood Glucose (BG) reading reminder. Since Carb is an important factor for a diabetic patient’s meals, the CIT provides a platform to record daily meals from which the patient can see the total carb intake. Through BGT, patients can record their fasting or non-fasting blood glucose reading. The PAT collects a patient’s movement data via Bluetooth from a pair of wearable insole devices, and processing the data identifies and records the current activity. The PAT can detect if the patient is active in sedentary, as well as the type of exercise done by the patient. Using BG reminder and medicine reminder, the patient can set reminders which supports the apps self-monitoring aspect. All the data collected by CIT, BGT, and PAT are stored in Microsoft Azure cloud database, an authorized physician can access the database and see graphical statistics of a patient’s diet, physical activity, and glycemic index level. The app portrays statistics of carbs taken over a period, calories burned, and Glucose level trends through graphical representation. This has two advantages: 1. Patients can improve lifestyle observing records and following reminders, 2. Physicians can prescribe actions perceiving a patient’s trends over time. This research presents unique collaborative interaction between diabetic patients and physicians to create a real time patient portal based on android APIs and wearable devices.
