With the advent of the internet and wireless technology, a worldwide communication system is available enabling people to communicate at anytime and anywhere and to exchange information online. Telemedicine systems have been proposed for nearly two decades as a means of supporting patients with chronic medical diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. In this paper we propose a strategic approach method for diabetic patient management system based on smart phone. The proposed method is categorized into three categories which are a hardware design, a software design and a social network service. At the strategy of a hardware design, we focus on the convenient use of a diabetes measurement system, so the data communication between a smart phone and a diabetes measurement system must be a wireless and we also focus on the patient- customizing software at the software design strategy. And the bidirectional clinical data communication between a patient and a hospital must be a real-time by the social network service.
