1. A method for determining a treatment dose for a treated patient, the method comprising:

  • obtaining, at data processing hardware, training data for a plurality of patients of a patient population from memory hardware in communication with the data processing hardware, the training data inputted to the memory hardware by a medical professional computing device associated with an authorized medical professional, the training data comprising training blood glucose history data and training patient-state information for each patient of the patient population, the training blood glucose history data comprising treatment doses of insulin administered by the patients of the patient population and one or more outcome attributes associated with each treatment dose of insulin administered by the patients of the patient population, the treatment doses comprising;

    meal boluses of insulin administered by each patient of the patient population during each of multiple scheduled time intervals throughout a day; and

    basal doses of insulin administered by each patient of the patient population;

    for each patient of the patient population, identifying, using the data processing hardware, optimum treatment doses of insulin from the treatment doses of insulin yielding favorable outcome attributes, the identified optimum treatment doses comprising;

    an optimum meal bolus of insulin associated with each scheduled time interval; and

    an optimum basal dose of insulin;

    receiving, at the data processing hardware, patient-state information for the treated patient;

    determining, using the data processing hardware, a next recommended treatment dose of insulin for the treated patient based on one or more of the identified optimum treatment doses associated with patients of the patient population having training patient-state information similar to the patient-state information for the treated patient; and

    transmitting the next recommended treatment dose of insulin to an administration device in communication with the data processing hardware, the administration device comprising;

    a doser; and

    an administration computing device in communication with the doser, the administration computing device configured to automatically dial in a number of units of insulin for the next recommended treatment dose of insulin and cause the doser to administer the number of units of insulin for the next recommended treatment dose of insulin to the treated patient,wherein determining the next recommended treatment dose of insulin for the treated patient comprises;

    determining the treated patient requires insulin based on the patient-state information for the treated patient;

    receiving meal boluses of insulin previously administered by the treated patient during a scheduled time-interval; and

    determining a next recommended meal bolus during the scheduled time interval for the treated patient based on the identified optimum meal bolus of insulin associated with the scheduled time interval and the received meal boluses of insulin previously administered by the treated patient during the scheduled time interval.
