Atlanta Ob/Gyn Practice Is One of the First in Georgia to Offer Online Records and Direct E-mail Access to Doctors, a Growing Trend in Patient Care

Atlanta, GA (Vocus) August 13, 2009 -- Atlanta Women’s Specialists, the long-term Ob/Gyn practice affiliated with Northside Hospital, is leading the way as one of the first physicians’ offices in Georgia to provide patients with online access to personal medical records, a new but growing trend in practices across the United States. The practice also allows patients direct e-mail contact with their physician. This inclusive approach to care strengthens communication between doctors and patients and encourages patients’ participation in their own care.

Consumers are also interested in online access to personal health information. The 2009 Survey of Health Care Consumers (Deloitte) found that 42% of people want access to online personal health records. As a result, medical practices are seeking ways to address the growing demand for online accessibility.

Atlanta Women’s Specialists launched their online health records portal, MyHealthRecords, in 2004 on their website,
