Diabetes Management Assisted by Telemedicine: Patient Perspectives
Diabetes, diabetes management, telemedicine
Telephone interviews were conducted with 33 elderly patients with diabetes prior to the study and at 6- and 12-month intervals once they were enrolled in the study. The study permitted computer-based case management, including teleconferencing, and the ability to upload data and access educational materials using a Web-enabled home telemedicine unit. The patients were eager to participate and were encouraged by their physicians. This approach to diabetes intervention has shown merit and provides an opportunity to better manage one’s health status.
