Approach & Solution

Approach

The adoption of unhealthy lifestyles (such as obesity, sedentary behaviour and poor diet) is leading to an ever-greater spread of type 2 diabetes, the complications of which often tend to be underestimated. Our experts are working on an mHealth-type service to support diabetic patients in preventing disease complications, as well as non-patients who are aware that they are at risk of developing the condition.

Solution

Users receive a series of customised recommendations, adapted to their knowledge levels and their state of health.
The suggestions are provided by health professionals, or automatically by the system, on the basis of psychological and motivational theories. This makes it possible to determine the interactions and persuasive strategies that are most likely to lead to a modification of the patients’ lifestyles.
The services involved consist of:
  • personalised coaching.
  • lifestyle monitoring.
  • patient empowerment.
  • patient engagement.
