Ubiquitous healthcare service for elderly patients with type 2 diabetes provides real-time glycemic monitoring and glucose control implemented by clinical decision support system (CDSS) using wire and wireless communication and information technology.
To evaluate the clinical efficacy of this system, researchers plan to compare the improvement of glycemic control, self-management, and quality of life among three study groups: control, self glucose monitoring, and U-healthcare group.
Recently, the application of internet-based glucose control system showed better long term glucose control compared to the conventional treatment. This study has become the foundation of web-based methodology in the glucose control. In addition, the combined application of mobile device and web-based monitoring system for chronic diseases showed improvement in various metabolic parameters in obese patients with diabetes and hypertension.
Thus, the application of U-healthcare based on advanced information technology would be helpful in the diabetes management. We plan to provide an individualized U-healthcare service using advanced information technology that enables more effective glucose control.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Health Services Research

An agency of the PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE established in 1990 to "provide indexing, abstracting, translating, publishing, and other services leading to a more effective and timely dissemination of information on research, demonstration projects, and evaluations with respect to health care to public and private entities and individuals engaged in the improvement of health care delivery..." It supersedes the National Center for Health Services Research. The United States Agency for Health Care Policy and Research was renamed Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) under the Healthcare Research and Quality Act of 1999.
