Paul Sonnier’s Wireless Health blog features a longish article by David Gruber, MD on a consumer-centric approach to diabetes management with technology as an enabler of change in this area. As a chronic condition, diabetes is largely manageable via consumer choices and behaviors; complications are largely preventable–with the usual caveats of user and caregiver tech savvy, physical condition and ‘who pays.’ Lots of background and statistics. Consumer engagement for diabetes technology: easier said than done.
