Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease that affects many people in Switzerland and around the world. Once diagnosed, a patient has to continuously monitor blood glucose, manage medications or inject insulin. Technical skills and competencies as well as knowledge on disease management have to be acquired right after being diagnosed. Diabetes consultants support patients in this process and provide educational material. While the process of generating patient-tailored material is currently complex and time consuming, in future, the eDiabetes platform can help. The platform developed in cooperation with the consulting section of the Swiss Diabetes Society offers the opportunity to create individual patient information and instructions to teach technical skills and knowledge on diabetes. Further, an integrated forum allows exchanging information and discussing issues regarding diabetes counselling on a secure platform. Usability tests showed that eDiabetes is easy to use and provides benefits for diabetes consultants and patients.
