i-Matter: Investigating an mHealth texting tool for embedding patient-reported data into diabetes management

Brief description of study

This study has two phases that will be completed over the course of 5 years. Phase 1 consists of the following: (1) focus groups to adapt MJS DIABETES to the needs of providers and patients with type 2 diabetes (2) a workshop to integrate MJS DIABETES into the electronic health record system, the primary care practice and the lives of patients with type 2 diabetes; and (3) evaluate the usability of MJS DIABETES in order to optimize the tool's performance and workflow integration. Phase 2 consists of a practice-based randomized controlled trial designed to test the effect of MJS DIABETES versus usual care on reducing HbA1c levels, and changes in how well patients comply with their self-care behaviors, knowledge about their diabetes, how sure they can manage their diabetes, and the quality of communication with their provider. This is Phase 1 of the study which seeks to refine and test a technology-based patient-reported outcome (PRO) system called the Modern Journal System [MJS] DIABETES. MJS DIABETES is designed to include patients' perspective of their disease and functional status into the management of type 2 diabetes in primary care practices.
