PRE-DIABETES - An Informatics Research Agenda

Barbara M. Hayes, William Aspray

Abstract

The paper sets out a research agenda for practitioners of the relatively new, interdisciplinary field of informatics who wish to improve the health experience for people who have susceptibility to diabetes – a condition known as pre-diabetes. Using information technology tools and methods, but with sensitivity to the social and organizational complexities of the health care system, the article suggests addressing a set of problems that will improve the lives of patients and their friends and families, as well as making the provision of pre-diabetes care more effective and cost-efficient. Topics include public health and community informatics, knowledge dissemination, information alerts, decision support, clinical guidelines, health literacy, patient, pharmacy, and laboratory feedback systems, interface design, reminder systems, consumer informatics, and privacy and security issues.
