Abstract : To prevent complications from diabetes, people with diabetes need to maintain near-normal blood glucose levels. In response to this need, the field of telemedicine has developed various applications that encourage people with diabetes to actively manage their disease, and that facilitates communication between the patients and care providers. Specifically, the ISIS Center at Georgetown University in the United States has developed the MyCareTeam System, a web-based, interactive diabetes management application. It allows people with diabetes to transmit their blood glucose data from glucose meters to a secured database, and enables them, as well as their healthcare providers, to access that data through a secure Internet connection. Currently, MyCareTeam is being implemented in multiple clinical settings, and a preliminary evaluation has suggested several guidelines for the development and implementation of such applications. From a clinical perspective, continuous education regarding diabetes and support from providers can increase a patient’s willingness to manage their diabetes using telemedicine applications such as MyCareTeam. From a technical perspective, telemedicine systems must be able to integrate data from diverse medical devices; the bandwidth speed must be fast enough to transmit the data remotely; and the application should be user-friendly. Finally, from an organizational perspective, there is a need for more dedicated technical and operational support, to prevent frequent turnover among the overburdened nurses who currently interact remotely with telemedicine patients. keyword : Telemedicine, Diabetes Management
