For people with chronic diseases such as diabetes managing their condition is a lifelong collaboration with healthcare professionals and community based support. Integrated care pathways utilising on-body sensing, remote monitoring, data aggregation and analysis together with community support offers a future of less intrusive more reactive care. Dr Tony Coll of Wellcome Trust-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science, Dr Roman Hovorka of University of Cambridge Metabolic Research Lab, Melissa Holloway of INPUT Patient Advocacy and Speaking Diabetes Ltd, and Dr Sufyan Hussein of Royal Free Hospitals Trust, Dr Stuart Stafford, AstraZeneca and Henrik Norström, Brighter.


This event investigates this complicated disease and how today’s remote monitoring solutions measure up to existing diabetes indications and established care pathways. We identify what technical challenges remain to be solved and discuss how pathways can unite towards an improved care, lower cost, connected future.
