Patient-physician e-mail communication revisited a decade later: an OKPRN study

J Okla State Med Assoc. 2009 Sep;102(9):291-3.


In private community-based primary care practices in Oklahoma, approximately two thirds of patients now have access to a computer and e-mail either at home or work. A substantial majority would like to use e-mail to communicate with their primary care clinicians. Since 1997, rural patients have caught up with urbanites in their access to computers.
