We took diabetes education online with the Leicester Diabetes Centre and produced an all encompassing responsive elearning and health management platform.
DESMOND is a well establish face to face educational programme for people with type 2 diabetes, which has been successful throughout the UK. Our task was to take the DESMOND ethos and educational sessions and produce a digital version for patients who are unable to attend face to face groups or as an extra support tool for DESMOND programme graduates.
The solution was a bespoke platform encompassing self improvement tools to track health metrics, custom built authoring tools to produce interactive and responsive e-learning sessions and a management system behind the scenes for patient administration and reporting. It was developed with scalability in mind to allow multiple Trusts to access the system using a SASS model.
The long term goal of MyDESMOND was to lay the foundations for a web based platform for use across the LDC’s programmes. It has already been repurposed for use in another project and will continue to form the basis of future developments.
