Abstract: All professionals, regardless of the service they provide, must remain current with technological developments in their field if they are to serve their clients effectively. The healthcare professions are no different, and, in the past, practitioners were the main focus of technological advancements in the healthcare fields. In today’s technologically savvy environment, however, consumer awareness has come to the forefront in health care. Some patients are more technologically adept than others; technological resources for patients should be simple to locate and user-friendly so patients are motivated to engage in self-care management.
