Figure B illustrates the analytic framework for identification of potential research gaps. The framework identifies possible gaps in the research that has been done in adults, children, adolescents, and the elderly with diabetes. The figure includes a list of gaps regarding insulin delivery and glucose monitoring methods which can lead to process outcome, intermediate health outcome, and clinical outcome gaps.
