Abstract

A Web-based telecommunications system can prompt patients to adhere to medication and self-care regimens, and to record medically relevant information. Because the system extends patient contact with health care providers, it facilitates communication and feedback. The results of a 3-month pilot study on the use of the system with older patients diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes are described.
