The exponential growth in technology has had a significant effect on the practice of medicine and will likely transform the practice of medicine. In this article, the authors review select technologies that are already influencing the practice of rheumatology. Social media Websites such as Twitter are now important sources of information and discussion for health care professionals interested in rheumatology. Virtual reality is an innovative technology with great potential for acute and chronic pain management. The authors also review several low-cost technology alternatives to commonly used tools used in rheumatology.
