Many individuals diagnosed with diabetes find themselves in the need to rethink their common daily routines, and alter their lifestyle and habits. Computing technology, especially ubiquitous computing applications, can help individuals maintain a high level of awareness of their health, reflect on and learn from their past experiences, and generally improve their diabetes management practices. However, to be successful, these applications require continuous engagement from their users and must be able to adapt to the changing environments of use, their users’ changing health and their growing understanding of their disease. In this work we designed the graphic user interface (GUI) of an android smartphone with features such as patient’s glucose level, time information is received, patient’s location with the aid of global positioning system (GPS), like colour code, voice recorder and facial expression for the different glucose levels. This system also utilizes Google sheet to manage Personal Health Records (PHRs), which not only bridges the gaps between patients and different health care providers but enabling accesses to patients’ PHRs anywhere and anytime by taking advantage of the universal accessibility of Google sheet. The system further integrates with GPS, Google Search and Google Map functionalities to facilitate the user to find all hospitals near to his/her current location.
