Dr. Mohamed Shafeeq and Dr. Zeeshan Khan

Abstract:

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder that affects millions of individuals worldwide. Effective self-management is crucial in controlling the disease and preventing complications. With the advent of digital health technologies, there has been a paradigm shift in diabetes management. This research paper explores the impact of digital health interventions on diabetes self-management and their potential to improve patient outcomes. We review various digital tools and technologies, and present evidence from clinical studies to demonstrate their effectiveness. Furthermore, we will see a new wave of innovations in the area of digital health, smart wearable’s, tele-health technologies, and “hospital-at-home” care delivery model. These technologies will be quickly adopted at scale to improve remote management of Diabetes, smartly triaging those who need to be seen in outpatient or inpatient clinics, and supporting acute or subacute care at home. In conclusion, we argue that embracing digital health solutions is essential for enhancing diabetes self-management and ultimately, the quality of life for individuals with diabetes.
