Project overview
The REACTION project will develop an integrated approach to improved long term management of diabetes; continuous blood glucose monitoring, clinical monitoring and intervention strategies, monitoring and predicting related disease indicators and, ultimately, automated closed-loop delivery of insulin. The intelligent, interoperable platform developed by REACTION will provide integrated, professional, management and therapy services to diabetes patients in different healthcare regimes across Europe. This article provides a brief overview of the REACTION project.

Medical background
The project will focus on and validate the REACTION platform in two operational healthcare domains 1) professional decision support in hospital environments for diabetic patients admitted to the general wards, and 2) control and management of outpatients in clinically diabetes schemes, including therapy compliance and support for self management.

The REACTION platform
The REACTION platform features an interoperable peer-to-peer communication platform based on a service oriented architecture – all functionalities, including devices, are represented as services and applications consist of a series of services orchestrated to perform a desired workflow.

Research focus
The REACTION project is leaning heavily on leading-edge methods and technologies in a range of research fields. This article provides an overview of all the fields with links to the individual areas.

Project methodology and workplan
REACTION is a 4-year research project with an iterative development approach. The methodology calls for comprehensive iterative requirements and stakeholder analysis based on initial requirements gathered from medical and clinical scenario thinking. The project will be implemented with in 12 Work Packages (WPs) structured in a matrix organisation.
