Abstract: This article shows the preliminary results of an ongoing study to develop an economically sustainable system, which financially rewards individuals with diabetes. \ \ Previous studies have already shown that monetary incentives appear to be the strongest motivator for older individuals with type II diabetes. \ Nonetheless, design criteria for a mobile service are not well established and there is no study available to assess the viability of a system that rewards individuals for self-management. \ Therefore, in this paper we explore a design theory, which describes a new mobile service that integrates data from other smartphone applications to assess therapeutic compliance. \ \ Our software includes a self-supported lottery in a business model, which allows patients with effective self-management to be rewarded without any deficit. \ Our prototype is based on a social business model, which aims at improving patients’ health and that can be described as ”healthy” for them.
