Diabetes is a common disorder that can have far-reaching social consequences. During the last few decades, the number of patients who suffer from diabetes has increased dramatically. This number is also expected to increase further in the next years. Despite substantial efforts by care providers, the present care structure is not able to provide diabetes patients with the care that is desirable in accordance with the medical guidelines. Therefore the Erasmus MC of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam The Netherlands, has developed the DiabetesStation®
together with IPT Medical Services BV (a KPN Company).
records the following vital parameters;
• Blood Pressure
• Fundus photo
• Foot photo
• Glucose values
• Activity monitoring
• HBA 1C
Benefits for the patient: The DiabetesStation®
provides the patient with an enhanced capability to actively control his disease (self-management)
. In addition immediate feedback and targeted education about the measured parameters help the patient to keep his disease better under control. When measurements are performed more regularly, complications can be detected earlier, so that the treatment can be started more quickly with fewer admissions to the physician.
Benefits for the physician: The treating physician can focus on discussing a personal treatment plan for his patients instead of performing routine measurements. At the same time, the DiabetesStation®
supports the treating physician in providing the necessary patient monitoring in accordance with the medical guidelines. The DiabetesStation®
also transmits the measured parameters to treating physicians information systems. This ensures that all care providers receive the same comprehensive picture. By ensuring regular monitoring, the treating physician can detect complications earlier and administer preventive treatment.
