Over recent years, digital technology has made huge progress and has penetrated into almost every aspect of our life. Digital tools increase the amount and accessibility to data, connect people and devices, and enable to reach millions of people anywhere and at any time. This is also reflected in the field of diabetes. In this webinar we will present digital solutions for diabetes care including technological advances in medical platforms, wearable tools, big data, health analytics, robotics and artificial intelligence. We will review the new digital tools for personalized management of diabetes and the evolving concept of a multidisciplinary digital clinic and decision support systems. These systems are automated tools that can support treatment decisions for a wide range of subjects with diabetes and holds the promise of greatly increasing access to quality medical care.
