Abstract

Treatment non adherence is a growing concern for health care providers and policy makers. Mobile health (mhealth) has the potential to reduce treatment non adherence, cut the costs of providing healthcare, maintain and improve the quality of care. This research discusses the design of a mobile phone application to improve diabetic patients' adherence to treatments. This research follows design science research guidelines and takes into account patients' personal traits to develop personalized motivational messages. The application sends reminders and motivational messages to patients, tracks patients' blood sugar level and generates reports. The application will be tested and evaluated by a group of diabetic patients on the effectiveness of promoting adherence, motivational messages and interface design.
