Introduction: Diabetes requires a high level of disease management to be executed by the patient himself in order to succeed in treatment and for improving or at least preserving his health status.
Aim: The main objective of the presented project is to design and implement a web technology based application framework. It shall provide sufficient means for selfmanagement and enable patient empowerment within the treatment process. Its underlying concept will be outlined in this work.
Methods: Common techniques on requirements’ engineering have been applied to derive an initial concept. It is based on a comprehensive state of the art analysis drawn from literature and web search.
Results: A service-oriented architecture could be drafted that enables interoperability with existing eHealth systems on a technical and semantic level. Pilots will be deployed in Germany and Turkey. Pilot specific requirements can be address as well due to its modular architecture.
Conclusion: The given concept gives a high level description of the envisaged approach. An initial prototype has been implemented. A second prototype is well on the way offering all major functionality and will be deployed within the pilot regions.
