1999 !! Making the Most of Physician-Patient E-mail #pm #hcr #hcsm

While data on physician-patient e-mail patterns are limited, patients appear eager to e-mail their doctors. Physicians are more reluctant. According to Cyber Dialogue, one of the leading researchers of Internet business trends, 48% of people surveyed in 1999 wanted to communicate with their physicians by e-mail. Perhaps more telling, one-third of those surveyed felt strongly enough about e-mail to consider changing physicians to be able to use it.

1999 folks!! 50% of patients wanted the ability to email their physician and considered changing physicians who would engage them. 1999 !!!

It’s 10 years later and not much has changed...

    November 19, 2019 … Looking into the future …It’s 10 years since the landmark passing of the ‘Healthcare Bill’ and american media noted an ‘unexpected’ decrease in number of physicians but members of the congress claimed that increase in malpractice lawyers has more than compensated for the shortage of doctors.
