Virtual Visit to the Doctor

January 23, 2007

On the radio program Marketplace Money this weekend, a story on personal health records, eprescribing and other ehealth topics aired. It’s good to see PHRs and ehealth beginning to seep into the media, even if it is only NPR so far. The story (available in audio only),  gave an odd example of a patient in the Boston area who actually avoids going to the doctor and gets his cholesterol-lowering drugs refilled apparently without even a blood test.  Patient Site was the example given; the story could have looked more broadly at PHRs or give a more typical example of the use of communication with a provider in combination with office visits.
