Abstract: Diabetes is one of the leading chronic diseases and its prevalence continues to rise exponentially. The goal of this article is to present the case for the application of a pervasive technology solution in the form of a wireless-enabled mobile phone to facilitate superior diabetes management. In so doing, we highlight the need for employing the S’ANT approach (Wickramasinghe and Bali, 2009) - namely the incorporation of Actor-network Theory and Social Network Analysis - in order to support a network centric healthcare solution.
