Abstract
Diabetes is one of the most challenging problems in the 21(st) century, whereby research showed that reducing the concentration of blood glucose is thought to prevent or reduce the long-term complications. To do so, a multidisciplinary approach is favourable. In Belgium, a revalidation programme for the diabetic patients concerning self-regulation was introduced followed by the introduction of the Diabetes Pass in March 2003 whereby some goals were stipulated. In IBBT-COPLINTHO, a still ongoing project, an eHomeCare platform is implemented whereby the patient is the central actor. The analysis of the current paper-based Diabetes Pass revealed that the data can be easily extracted from the EHR. An electronic alternative for the Diabetes pass is proposed whereby the added values for the patient are underlined. Before implementing the electronic alternative, some research should still be done, but it is thought that all the actors involved including the patient, could easily benefit from the electronic alternative.
