    Abstract

    In the UK, 85% of adults use the internet, yet digital technology and web based applications have been slow to realise their potential within health care. Diabetes, a chronic disease requiring extensive self-management, could particularly benefit from an e-health approach. Whilst there are a number of independent on-line diabetes communities, mobile apps, websites and networking opportunities, these operate in silos rather than integrating with mainstream health care. This review will explore the political drivers and barriers to eHealth, and review current digital opportunities for patients and health care professionals within diabetes care.
