1. A method of operating an infusion device to deliver fluid to a user in accordance with an operating mode of a plurality of operating modes supported by the infusion device, the method comprising:obtaining, by a control system associated with the infusion device, operational information pertaining to one or more prior instances of the operating mode;
obtaining, by the control system, status information pertaining to the infusion device;
determining, by the control system, an expected start time for a subsequent instance of the operating mode based on the operational information;
determining, by the control system, a buffer time based at least in part on the operating mode of the plurality of operating modes;
determining, by the control system, a diagnosis time as the buffer time prior to the expected start time, the diagnosis time being prior to the subsequent instance of the operating mode;
automatically determining, by the control system, viability of the subsequent instance of the operating mode based at least in part on the status information at the diagnosis time; and
automatically generating, by the control system, a notification indicative of a recommended action for the user based at least in part on the viability.
