Remote Monitoring Systems for Self-Managing Type 2 Diabetes: A Systematic Review

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Our systematic review aims to evaluate the impact web-based telemonitoring for managing Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. We used MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, AMED, Cochrane and PubMed to conduct our search. The technology used, trial design, quality of life and Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) outcome measures were extracted from systemic reviews, meta-analyses, randomised controlled trials and cohort studies. From 426 publications identified, 19 met our search criteria; 10 quasi-experiments out of which 7 are pre-post test studies, 2 are cohort studies and 1 is interrupted time-series study, and 9 randomised controlled trials (RCT). Electronic transfer of glucose results from home to hospital appears to be more feasible for healthcare delivery. 15 studies showed positive improvement in HbA1c levels. Finally, it remains challenging to identify evidence in the rapidly changing area of remote monitoring, the optimal design of a telemonitoring system is still uncertain and the impact of the remote glucose transmissions remains controversial.
