Managing chronic disease effectively and economically is an increasingly critical healthcare issue. Self-care of chronic disease, a growing phenomenon, represents an opportunity to address this issue. Advances in computing technologies help individuals with chronic diseases collect unprecedented volumes of health-related data. However, engaging in reflective analysis of the collected data may be challenging for the untrained individuals. MAHI (Mobile Access to Health Information) is a health monitoring application that assists newly diagnosed individuals with diabetes in acquiring and developing reflective thinking skills through social interaction with diabetes educators. Our studies with MAHI explore both the effect on patient self-management skills and goals, as well as the patient's own perception of their ability to impact their health.
