Condition(s) targeted: Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1

Intervention: Meos ePortal use (Device)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Active, not recruiting

Sponsored by: University Hospital, Grenoble

Primary objective of TELEDIAB-3 study is to demonstrate that the use of Meos Telemedicine ePortal for sharing information between diabetologist and type 1 diabetic patient is not inferior to a conventional care regarding metabolic results at 12 months.

Clinical Details

Official title: Prospective Assessment of Meos Telemedicine E-portal on Ambulatory Care of Type 1 Diabetic Patients

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

Primary outcome: HbA1c measured at 12 months in Meos ePoral group versus conventional care group. Non-inferiority level is defined at a 0.15% threshold for an expected HbA1c of 8.5% at 12 months

Secondary outcome:

HbA1c measured at 6 months in each group

HbA1c measured at 12 months in each group

HbA1c measured at 6 months in each group according to initial HbA1c level (higher than 8% or to median)

HbA1c measured at 12 months in each group according to initial HbA1c level (higher than 8% or to median)

Definition of failure: study withdraws or emergency hospitalization linked to diabetes or HbA1c increase of 0.5 % up to 12 months of follow up

Annual cost of diabetes care from hospital and health insurance' points of view

Quality of life at inclusion and 12 months, using the Diabetes Health Profile (DHP-1) scale and the Satisfaction items of the Diabetes Quality of Life (DQOL) questionnaire

Qualitative analysis by semi-structured interviews, then quantitative survey by questionnaire

Detailed description: Meos is the name of the website (Telemedicine ePortal) tested in this trial ; it is used to share informations between diabetologist and type 1 diabetic patients.
