The research question discusses the impacts of self-management devices (online Web portals and Web applications, mobile health devices, and video game health management devices) on health outcomes for diabetic patients. The hypothesis is that self-management devices will have no effect on the health status of diabetic patients. This hypothesis will be disproved if these devices impact the self-management of care in some manner, either through changes in health outcomes, reduced costs, by providing education, awareness, coordination, and/or monitoring. The study holds race, income, education, and other socioeconomic and demographic features constant. Patients using the technology must primarily manage their own diabetes, such that their clinician or caregiver is not their only source of care management.
