The goal of this research is to design, implement and in the long-term evaluate the application of mobile technology to improve detection of undiagnosed diabetes and pre-diabetes. Specifically, we would like to develop this app that is an innovation on the current available set of apps. We believe that the addition of an app on smart phones in outpatient settings to the current standard practice will lead to improved diagnosis of diabetes and pre-diabetes in these patients.
