Controlling Chronic Diseases related to Metabolic Disorders
METABO is an EU-funded European ICT project carried out within the 7th Framework Program devoted to the study and support of metabolic management in diabetes for both, patients and specialists. Diabetes disease is currently growing considerably among the population, reaching prevalence levels of epidemic proportions. METABO focuses on the improvement of diabetes disease management by providing patients and medical Metabo doctors with a technological platform to help them handle and analyze all information related to diabetes treatment, integrating it with patients´ lifestyle data.
The project addresses the need of health practitioners to develop and implement more effective and adaptive monitoring and modeling processes of chronic diseases for improving care provision, enhancing patients’ quality of life and lowering the costs for National Health Systems and individuals.
