In many ways, technology—the Internet, electronic medical records, even social media—has transformed how healthcare is delivered. Once the domain of a few “tech-y” physicians, and a few Internet-savvy elders, interaction with, and through, the computer has increased exponentially in the past decade. “Connected” patients search the Internet for medical information, and join chat rooms and message boards seeking information related to a particular condition. It is estimated that 10 percent to 15 percent of patients now exchange information with their clinicians via e-mail.  But how effective is the electronic communication between medical professionals and patients? Can it replace “person-centered” medical care that includes engagement with an individual? Board-certified geriatrician Cheryl Phillips discusses these issues. PLEASE NOTE: CEUs for this event are no longer available.
