This track is linked to the ProEmpower – a European Commission funded initiative aiming to procure €3M on a population management solution to support patients with Diabetes Mellitus type 2. The objective is to provide continuous diabetes management to 12 million patients by procuring a comprehensive IT solution that considers all aspects of care. Proposed solutions should go beyond the state of the art in diabetes type 2 management.
