Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Telehealth, m-health, e-health, and social media have been parts of everyone’s life, with no exception for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses. It is important to understand their experiences in using or accessing these means, and what as well as how their user experiences are related to their quality of life and well-being. Such research will inform various stakeholders in making corresponding evaluations, interventions, and public health policy to improve quality of life and well-being in people with disabilities and chronic illnesses in the digital era.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish high-quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances in this field.

Dr. Chung-Yi Chiu
Guest Editor
