Health Informatics - An International Journal (HIIJ) 1 (1): 19-26 (August 2012)

The study presents ‘Non-Insulin Depended Diabetics Mellitus’ (NIDDM), SMS-based system for Type-II diabetes management by itself. The system is structured to be long term health assistance for patients with type-II diabetes. It permits the patients to get touched to their doctor constantly. With the SMS exchange, the patients can send their general and physical status, i.e., demographic & social characteristics, awareness of Mobile phone applications, blood sugar measurements, insulin intake and other data to the doctor, which makes continuous health monitoring possible. Based on the patient data sent, an SMS messages can be return to motivate patients, it reminds them of physical activities such as, physical exercise, and healthcare appointments. In addition, an offline mobile phone multimedia educational system is also proposed with existed SMS based system. The system was discussed with the physician for system applicability for type-II diabetic patients. It was found in primary testing that the involvement of proposed system can be able to impact on some clinical outcomes, self-efficacy and diabetes management. The SMS based system technology appears feasible in diabetic care and relief but this technology must be made more user-friendly before clinical implementation at larger scale.
