Professor Muriel Mignerat won a best paper award for a study titled, "Using Telecare for Diabetic Patients: A Mixed Systematic Review", presented during eTELEMED 2013, the Fifth International Conference on eHealth, Telemedicine, and Social Medicine, held in Nice, France earlier this year. The study’s authors are Isabelle Vedel of the McGill University Faculty of Medicine, Muriel Mignerat of the Telfer School, and Anshuman Saksena and Liette Lapointe of McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management. The award was given by the Board of the International Academy, Research, and Industry Association (IARIA).
This systematic review examined the different telecare interventions implemented, the technologies used, as well as their associated outcomes. The results will be used to tailor policies with regards to the use of telecare interventions and the technologies implemented to care for patients with diabetes.
