There is a paucity of data on the impact of mobile technology on physician-led education in the pediatric population. We performed a prospective pilot study in a pediatric diabetes clinic to evaluate the impact of tablet-based patient education. A total of 106 patients and caregivers completed postclinic surveys, 64 (60%) in the intervention group and 42 (40%) in the control group. The majority of the intervention group patients (86%) liked tablet use and felt it was better or similar (99%) to baseline. Moreover, a majority receiving tablet-based education perceived an increase in diabetes knowledge (57%) compared with baseline (39%), though the difference did not reach statistical significance (P = .059). Those who received tablet-based education felt they were educated on more diabetes-related topics. As the use of mobile technology in medicine grows, additional research is needed to compare mobile technology with traditional methods in providing education to the pediatric population.
