VPAC was commissioned by BioGrid (formerly Bio21:MMIM) to update the current Diabetes system to a more advanced, web-based system for clinical usage. Data collected could then be migrated into BioGrid to enable research into Diabetes.
Diabetes affects an estimated 800,000 Australians. Typically, patients are referred from their local general practitioner to Diabetes Optimisation Clinics to develop a specialised stability plan for the individual patient. Undetected or poorly controlled diabetes can lead to eye and kidney diseases (including blindness and kidney failure), cardiovascular complications (including stroke and heart attack), lower limb amputation and impotence.Further Information
