After observation of the patient-physician interaction model, we return to improve the individual patient agent model of developing the CPA and SPA in the second part of this work, since we believe patients are the most important components in the healthcare system. The improvement is mainly on the enhancements of the Ackerman model which has been discussed in Sect. 3.2. The CPA integrates several essential attributes in diabetes management that may affect diabetes, such as eating habits, physical activity levels and medication. The name of the CPA does not have a special meaning, but only comes from comparison with the SPA, which is characterized by self-awareness.
