Gestational diabetes (GDM) burden has been increasing progressively over the past years. Knowing that intrauterine exposure to maternal diabetes confers high risk for macrosomia as well as for future type 2 diabetes and obesity of the offspring, health care organizations try to provide effective control in spite of the limited resources. Artificial-intelligenceaugmented telemedicine has been proposed as a helpful tool to facilitate an efficient widespread medical assistance to GDM. The aim of the study we present was to test the feasibility and acceptance of a mobile decision-support system for GDM, developed in the seventh framework program MobiGuide Project, which includes computer-interpretable clinical practice guidelines, access to data from the electronic health record as well as from glucose, blood pressure, and activity sensors. The results of this pilot study with 20 patients showed that the system is feasible. Compliance of patients with blood glucose monitoring was higher than that observed in a historical group of 247 patients, similar in clinical characteristics, who had been followed up for the 3 years prior to the pilot study. A questionnaire on the use of the telemedicine system showed a high degree of acceptance.
