  Purpose

The study is a two-arm, parallel-comparison, single-blind, randomized controlled trial, and will be offered to Kaiser Permanente members aged 18 - 75 years old who present to the Santa Rosa Diabetes Care Management Center with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two treatment arms. The telemedicine group or the group receiving usual care (the control group).

This study hopes to show the usefulness of this telemonitoring technology and more specifically, to assess whether this device improves markers of control of diabetes, glycemic control, and cardiovascular risk factors
