Based in the Washington Metropolitan Area, Suresh Doki leads Paragon Systems, a systems integration government contractor. Previously, he founded and spearheaded Cambridge Systems, which provided business intelligence, data warehousing, help desk, and business process outsourcing services. He earned a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Massachusetts.
The National Science Foundation awarded a four-year, $1.2 million grant to a WPI team to facilitate the development of an application that coordinates a blood glucose meter, a smartphone, and a scale. Developers hope to assist individuals with foot ulcers and advanced diabetes in managing the disease.
The app will record and track data regarding weight and blood sugar levels, and accept foot ulcer images taken with the smartphone’s camera. Based on the data, the program will send users health care messages. In addition, the tool will monitor the progress of the foot lesions.
One of WPI’s business professors described the goal of the app development project: to enhance patients’ abilities to provide self-care, as so much of advanced diabetes management occurs away from doctors’ purview.
