Abstract: Diabetes is one of the leading chronic diseases affecting Australians and its prevalence continues to rise. It is becoming a serious challenge for both the quality of healthcare and expenditure in the Australian healthcare system. The goal of this study is to investigate the development and application of a pervasive wireless technology solution to facilitate the effective management of diabetes in the context of women with gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes that affects up to 8% of pregnant women. A transactions cost assessment of this solution is also provided. Integral to the success of this solution is the pervasive technology solution which serves to support and facilitate superior diabetes self-management.
