In the past fifteen years, health and human services organizations have increasingly adopted technology of all types from the mundane (email) to the more sophisticated and exciting (robots). Understanding the ever-evolving and sophisticated world of health and human services technology- EHRs, smartphone apps, telehealth, text messaging, data cubes, smart glass, etc.-  is imperative to organizations that want to survive. In addition to understanding the available technology, organizations also need to adopt the technologies that will work best for their organization and consumers. Navigating your treatment technology decisions involves considering strategy, deciding on functionality needs, and thinking through the optimal consumer interfaces.
