Americans with disabilities encounter barriers to using electronics. This may preclude the ability to manage one’s health.

OT has a vital role in assessing technology use, assessing health literacy, creating interventions, and tracking health outcomes. This study examines electronic health literacy and technology use on an acute rehab unit.
