Learn how to manage your Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus with personalized advice
DMCoach is a project aiming to educate, assist and monitor citizens with a high risk for the development of Diabetes Mellitus (type 2) or patients with already diagnosed pathology.
DMCoach has the main goal to improve the patients and citizens’ lifestyle by increasing the awareness on the risks related to having a not-healthy lifestyle. The improvement is obtained motivating and educating the patient with tailor-made advices. The patient information is used to semi-automatically produce such advices applying a clinically validated medical knowledge and the mediation of clinicians.
The project applies to the Digital Wellbeing Innovation Action and is co-founded from EIT Digital
The adoption of incorrect lifestyles is leading to an increasing spread of type 2 diabetes mellitus. This pathology, more and more often, discourages the patient who then neglects and underestimates the therapeutic indications with consequent complications. Complication management has a major impact on public and private health costs.
The goal is to create an ecosystem for mHealth to raise citizens' awareness of the risk of developing the disease. In addition, we support and educate patients with targeted and personalized recommendations (automatic and / or provided by dedicated clinical figures) in the management of lifestyles to prevent complications of the disease.
