The three key research questions of this thesis are: how can data from various mobile wellness apps be combined to help support lifestyle change and clinical decision making in the management of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM)? How can this combination be supported and built based on semantic interoperability using lexical database and/or ontologies like health standards, food and nutrition? Are clinicians and women with GDM ready to use such approaches?
