How can web based patient health-care education delivery be improved for weight management? Obesity is a major precursor to diabetes, heart disease, joint problems, depression, and social isolation. An extensive literature review was conducted in addition to a review of patient information delivery programs at The Kaiser Permanente Medical Group. After reviewing the literature and program results, it was concluded that patient care delivery requires patient’s pro-action. This is best accomplished by expanding the web based health education components under the supervision of a nurse. Nurses need to be involved in designing patient care systems. The effective integration of patients, nurses and physicians in developing web based delivery of health education will lead to improved compliance behavior via the system’s monitoring by the nurse. Nurse Managers will be able to cut the staffing needed to monitor patient progress. An increase in nursing staff satisfaction and patient satisfaction will be achieved. This article provides nurse managers with substantive information on how and why to implement web based delivery of patient education to improve the quality of life and longevity for the individual.
