DURHAM, N.C. (Reuters) - Diagnosing illnesses in cyberspace may be a
distant reality, but more physicians should take advantage of the
Internet and e-mail to inform and communicate with patients,
researchers said Tuesday. "E-mail has become a ubiquitous tool for
communicating with business associates, friends and family. So there
should be little surprise that Net-savvy patients would like greater
digital access to their physicians," said Tom Ferguson, the author of
an editorial in a special edition of the Journal of the American
Medical Association devoted to the subject. Only 1-2% of U.S.
physicians offer patients the option of contacting them online, he
said.
