The researchers aimed to assess the relationship between remote digital monitoring (RDM) modalities for diabetes and intrusiveness in patients’ lives. They developed an online questionnaire and interviewed 1010 patients in 30 countries. Remote digital diabetes monitoring is seen as intrusive when it includes food monitoring, real-time feedback and private-sector data handling.

Contaminations by Sars-Cov2 preferentially affect people with chronic diseases. The researchers aimed to assess what these patients were doing during the COVID-19 pandemic. They developed a questionnaire about their assessment of their own risk and how they dealt with it. They recruited 7,169 ComPaRe participants. Patients with chronic diseases have a distorted view of their risk of severe COVID-19 while they are more exposed due to their background or their attitudes.
