Empowering patients to use technology to manage their care

The American Medical Association (AMA) is having a series of health information technology (health IT) webinars and the final episode will focus on empowering patients to use technology to manage their care.  
Learn how technology enables remote monitoring, patient self-management and reporting, teleconsultation and electronic visits—all of which can help your practice efficiently manage patients during “Engaging patients in using technology to manage their personal health care,” a free webinar scheduled to take place at 1 p.m. Eastern time Feb. 4.

The webinar is the final program in a four-part series from the AMA and TransforMED, a subsidiary of the American Academy of Family Physicians, that aims to help physician practices successfully implement health information technology (IT) and improve their efficiency and quality of care. Visit the AMA health IT Web site and click on “Health IT webinars” to learn more about this program and view others in the series.
How do we empower patients so that they can know how to responsibly leverage technology to manage their own conditions? The Internet contains a ton of inaccurate health information. Do most patients know how to recognize reliable health content?
