Have you developed or used digital technology to improve the treatment and management of diabetes?
Who can enter?
We welcome entries from healthcare professionals, in-house teams, agencies and consultancies.
This category recognises the increasing role of technology in the care and support of people with diabetes.
Submissions can include any initiative aimed at improving the lives of people living with diabetes which uses technology infrastructure, new technologies and non-traditional ways of engagement at the core of the initiative.
The initiative should be based in the UK (although may be used globally) and could include integrated technology systems; online support forums or communities; virtual communities using technologies such as Twitter or Google Hangouts; the provision of patient support using non-traditional face-to-face methods such as Skype, texting or email. Any non-traditional approach utilising new technology will be considered.
Examples may include:
- Mobile health – from app to medical device, blood glucose monitoring, personalised advice on nutrition and physical activity etc
- Digital tools in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes
- Digital collaboration in diabetes research ie Google Life Sciences and contact lens to detect glucose levels
- Home monitoring
- Social media eg Facebook groups for new mums with pre-school children with diabetes.
