Short description: The main driver of diabetes health complications is inconsistent nutrition tracking which leads to poor dietary choices and imprecise insulin dosing. Poor patient adherence to selfmanagement accounts for over 50% of all diabetes-related health complications.
Market potential: Governments, insurers and private enterprises hold a substantial economic interest in decreasing the impact of diabetes, while patients (end-users) strive for a better quality of life.
Timing: Solving the diabets self-managment puzzle has been one of the most persisting challenges of the global healthcare system over several decades.
Desired result: We need innovative digital solutions for emerging medical tools (next-gen insulin pumps) and validating them in a clinical setting.
Information on challenge owner: Hospital.
