How can social media impact on care?

Pin It Now!
In a recent article at Medical Daily, they look at the impact different social tools can have on the health of patients.  While it can be a new learning tool, it's also a way to manage health.  The UC San Diego School Of Medicine is looking at how the Wellaho, an app, can affect the health both in the hosptial and at home for patients with Type I & II Diabetes. The School is conducting a test by measuring the use of it's participants by looking at how many times they log in, how many others they invite to the platform and how long they're on the platform.

What do you think the results of the study of the App will find?  Do you think patients find apps like these beneficial for their health?
