Abstract: We have developed a multi-agent platform as a complement to the existing healthcare system in a children's diabetic healthcare setting. It resolves problems related to the difficulty of collaboration between the stakeholders of the problem domain. In addition, it gives us an opportunity to support the decision-making of the stakeholders using multi-agent systems. The collaboration situation is believed to be improved by the agent-based services, such as, diabetes monitoring and alarm, scheduling, and task delegation.
