This paper describes a telemedicine system for diabetic patients management, presenting its architecture, the technical solutions adopted and the methodologies on which it is based. The system, designed to provide decision support in a distributed environment, is composed of two modules, a Patient Unit and a Medical Unit, connected by telecommunication services. We outline how the two modules can interact to perform an effective monitoring and a cooperative control of glucose metabolism. In particular, we detail the data analysis tasks performed by the two units and how the results are exploited to assist patients and physicians in revising and adjusting the therapeutic protocol. We will finally describe the current prototypical implementation of the system that uses HTTP as the communication protocol and HTML pages as the graphical user interface.

Abstract

This paper describes a telemedicine system for diabetic patients management, presenting its architecture, the technical solutions adopted and the methodologies on which it is based. The system, designed to provide decision support in a distributed environment, is composed of two modules, a Patient Unit and a Medical Unit, connected by telecommunication services. We outline how the two modules can interact to perform an effective monitoring and a cooperative control of glucose metabolism. In particular, we detail the data analysis tasks performed by the two units and how the results are exploited to assist patients and physicians in revising and adjusting the therapeutic protocol. We will finally describe the current prototypical implementation of the system that uses HTTP as the communication protocol and HTML pages as the graphical user interface.
