"DOCTOR- WHY WILL YOU NOT GIVE ADVICE OVER
Advice from the Medical Society of the State of New York: December 13, 2002:
Physicians Should Only Email Patients That They Know.
Physicians should only conduct e-mail consultations if they have previously established a relationship with a patient, according to new guidelines announced on December
11, 2002. A consortium of national medical societies and malpractice carriers, known as the eRisk Working Group for Healthcare, developed the guidelines to limit the liability risks of communicating via e-mail. State medical licensing boards also participated in the development of the guidelines. State regulators have recently taken action against so-called "doc-in-the-box" services that provide online consultations and prescribe medications for patients they have never seen.
