This chapter discusses the rationale for selecting information technology-based solutions for diabetes care. It highlights the prevailing tendency to design health interventions around the technology rather than around the use of technology to support core clinical or self-management outcomes. It argues that the design of successful Web-based interventions requires expertise in health behavior change and technical expertise in the areas of computing and information sciences and presents recommendations for designing Web-based diabetes self-management and education interventions using a user-centered perspective.

Keywords:   diabetes care, information technology, health interventions, self-management outcomes, Web-based interventions, information sciences, education interventions
