Achieving and maintaining good blood glucose control is a difficult task for these patients and their health care providers. A prototypical case-based decision support system was built to assist with this task. A clinical research study, involving 20 patients, yielded 50 cases of actual problems in blood glucose control, with their associated therapeutic adjustments and clinical outcomes, for the prototype's case base. The prototype operates by: (1) detecting problems in blood glucose control in large quantities of patient blood glucose and life event data; (2) finding similar past problems in the case base; and (3) offering the asso...
