In order to facilitate the evidence-based goal setting and self-monitoring intervention into
the diabetes education practice, the investigator proposes to use Chronicle Diabetes, an
electronic system provided available to the American Diabetes Association diabetes education
programs, to set patient diet and physical activity goals, and connect patient
self-monitoring information collected from smart phones and fitness trackers to Chronicle
Diabetes system to facilitate educators' monitoring of patient adherence to their goals.

Specific Aim 1: To develop and test an interface with Chronicle Diabetes to transfer
smartphone collected self-monitoring diet and physical activity information from patients to
diabetes educators.

Specific Aim 2: To 2a) conduct usability testing and 2b) examine efficacy of this connected
interface technology in a 3-month randomized clinical trial in 60 overweight or obese
patients with type 2 diabetes in Houston, Texas and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

1. Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes

2. Overweight or obese with an BMI > 25
