E-Consults on the Rise

The new trend in medical treatment is toward electronic medical consulting. Many physicians are offering consultations via the Internet or email, and health insurance companies such as Cigna and Aetna are also covering on-line consultations. Patients, however, are slow to take to the service, and younger patients are more apt to seek an e-consult than older patients. E-consults are cheaper and more convenient than office visits, and patients often save money. However some doctors express reservations about not being able to see the patient face to face. Sun-Sentinel.com, July 21, 2008
