Diabetes Mellitus a prevalent chronic disease that affects people from all genders and ages, continues to grow exponentially with predictions of nearly 578 million people affected by 2030. Self-management, known to be an essential aspect of any care program can help patients with diabetics to control blood glucose and thereby reduce the impact and likely complications. However, self-management to date has included the development of digital health solutions have poor sustained uptake. This is primarily since such digital solutions have a poor fit with patient and clinician needs. In this paper we propose a digital platform for supporting patients with diabetes. The proposed platform is a work-in-progress research and has been co-designed and co-developed (jointly with patients and clinicians) based on design science principles and includes key aspects of task-technology fit information system theory for further evaluation.
