Summary of "Selection biases in technology-based intervention research: patients' technology use relates to both demographic and health-related inequities."

Researchers conduct studies with selection biases, which may limit generalizability and outcomes of intervention research. In this methodological reflection, we examined demographic and health characteristics of implantable cardioverter defibrillator patients who were excluded from an informatics intervention due to lack of access to a computer and/or the internet.
