Which of the following statements is NOT a way that these apps have changed medicine?


The apps often motivate patients to take better care of themselves and make better choices.


Patients can more fully understand their symptoms, diagnosis, and the actions taken by their doctor.


Patients have more control over their health care, since they are more informed.


All of the above.
