Abstract

BACKGROUND: Telehealth services for chronic diseases are becoming more and more popular since they are expected to improve health outcomes and reduce costs. Especially for diabetes patients, life-long disease management is required. However, there are situations in a patient's life, when motivation to continue the participation in disease management programs is low and the dropout-risk is high.

OBJECTIVES: We analysed if an adherence management module provided to healthcare professionals within a pre-existing diabetes telehealth service can improve the long-term adherence.

METHODS: The adherence to the agreed data submission protocol was determined prior and post implementation of the adherence management module.

RESULTS: Adherence to the agreed data submission protocol was higher after implementation of the adherence management module as compared to previous years.

CONCLUSION: Adherence to the agreed data submission protocol can be improved by helping healthcare professionals to identify patients at risk of dropout. Further analyses are indicated to proof these results in a prospective study.
