Date:1/26/2010

Manhattan Research’s latest report discusses the outlook on health information technology for physicians, including current and future adoption of electronic medical records, e-prescribing, and online patient communication

(PRWEB) January 26, 2010 -- Dermatologists and medical oncologists are the physician specialist groups most likely to communicate with patients online, according to the latest physician report, “Physicians in 2012: The Outlook on Health Information Technology,” from pharmaceutical and healthcare market research company Manhattan Research. Neurologists, endocrinologists, and infectious disease specialists round out the top five specialist groups connecting with patients online. Overall, 39% of physicians currently email, secure message, or instant message their patients – a 14% increase since 2006.

Top Specialist Groups Connecting with Patients Online

1. Dermatologists
2. Medical Oncologists
3. Neurologists
4. Endocrinologists
5. Infectious Disease Specialists

“We find that those physicians connecting with their patients online are more likely to be accessing the Internet during patient consultations and using various forms of health IT across the board,” states Erika S. Fishman, Director of Research at Manhattan Research and lead author of the report. “As we work to remove the barriers to physician adoption of online communication with patients, and each party becomes more comfortable with exchanging health information online, we could see a parallel movement in use of electronic medical records and personal health records.”
