3041. Prospective comparison of endoscopy patient satisfaction surveys: e-mail versus standard mail versus telephone. (PubMed)

Prospective comparison of endoscopy patient satisfaction surveys: e-mail versus standard mail versus telephone. The dramatic growth of the Internet holds potential for use in survey distribution. Comparisons of electronic mail (e-mail) to traditional survey techniques are lacking. We compared standard mail, telephone, and e-mail modes of endoscopy satisfaction survey administration with respect to response rate, timeliness of response, response content, and cost-efficiency of responses.An (...) endoscopy satisfaction questionnaire consisting of seven core items from the modified Group Health Association of America-9 survey was distributed to patients after routine outpatient endoscopy. Patients were randomized to receive the questionnaire by standard mail, telephone, or e-mail. Response rates and findings in the three groups were compared. The "nonresponders" to the standard mail and e-mail surveys were subsequently contacted by telephone to determine their level of satisfaction.The phone

3043. Enhancing Therapeutic Impact and Therapeutic Alliance Through Electronic Mail Homework Assignments (PubMed)

Enhancing Therapeutic Impact and Therapeutic Alliance Through Electronic Mail Homework Assignments Homework assignments can enhance therapeutic impact and increase therapy effectiveness by encouraging patients to focus on therapy-related issues between sessions. Computer technology provides a new avenue for reporting, monitoring, and feedback of patient homework assignments through electronic mail (e-mail). In two case examples, e-mail was used as an extension of therapy to enhance patient (...) involvement in treatment. In both cases, patient reports suggest that therapeutic alliance and therapeutic impact improved with the use of e-mail homework reporting. The costs and benefits of the use of e-mail as an adjunct to therapy are discussed.

3045. Use of electronic mail in a teaching hospital. (PubMed)

Use of electronic mail in a teaching hospital. Electronic mail has been in use for almost 20 years at Boston's Beth Israel Hospital and is an integral part of the clinical information system. Through a study of usage patterns during a one-week period, we found that 1247 persons sent 7482 messages to 1302 different recipients. Each category of user (attending physician, house officer, nurse, etc.) sent the most e-mail to others of the same user category. Through an electronically administered (...) questionnaire, we found that self-reported usage patterns had a high correlation (r = 0.6) with measured use. Sixty-six percent of respondents used e-mail daily or weekly, and 58% used it for issues of patient care; nearly all users found this useful for communicating about patient care issues. Ninety percent of respondents felt e-mail made their lives easier and 61% felt it had a humanizing influence on their lives. We conclude that the e-mail system is well-utilized by clinical personnel and felt

FAMNET: The Use of an Electronic Mail System in Canadian Academic Family Medicine The major Canadian universities are connected via a computer communications network called `Netnorth'. We have used Netnorth's accessible, low-cost, electronic mail system to develop a network of academic Family Medicine users (Famnet). We then tested Famnet's utility for conducting rapid surveys. Famnet shows promise of being a useful means of undertaking regular inter-departmental communication. This system may

Cost-effective clinical uses of wide-area networks: electronic mail as telemedicine. Electronic mail (E-mail) is widely used as a means of communication in the medical community. E-mail is clearly inexpensive when compared to two-way, fully interactive, real-time, video telemedicine. By content analysis of 200 consecutive messages, we show E-mail to be a low-cost use of computer networks, supporting a wide range of physician decision-making.

An SDI program for distributing funding opportunities using electronic mail. As the competition for funding increases, the need to make researchers aware of all available funding is becoming more acute. The solution presented here is a Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI) service which electronically mails funding information that matches a researcher's keywords. The keywords are part of extensive faculty profiles that make up a Faculty Expertise database. The funding information comes

3049. A survey of patient access to electronic mail: attitudes, barriers, and opportunities. (PubMed)

A survey of patient access to electronic mail: attitudes, barriers, and opportunities. The use of electronic mail (e-mail) is increasing among both physicians and patients, although there is limited information in the literature about how patients might use e-mail to communicate with their physician. In our university-based internal medicine clinic, we have studied attitudes toward and access to e-mail among patients. A survey of 444 patients in our clinic showed that 46% of patients (...) in the clinic use e-mail, and 89% of those with e-mail use it at work. Fifty-one percent would use e-mail all or most of the time to communicate with the clinic if it were available, and many of the communications that currently take place by phone could be replaced by e-mail. Barriers to e-mail use include privacy concerns among patients who use e-mail in the workplace, choosing the appropriate tasks for e-mail, and methods for efficiently triaging electronic messages in the clinic.

3050. Electronic mail. (PubMed)

Electronic mail. Electronic mail (email) has many advantages over other forms of communication: it is easy to use, free of charge, fast, and delivers information in a digital format. As a text only medium, email is usually less formal in style than conventional correspondence and may contain acronyms and other features, such as smileys, that are peculiar to the Internet. Email client programs that run on your own microcomputer render email powerful and easy to use. With suitable encoding (...) methods, email can be used to send any kind of computer file, including pictures, sounds, programs, and movies. Numerous biomedical electronic mailing lists and other Internet services are accessible by email.

Do electronic mail discussion lists act as virtual colleagues? Anesthesiology Discussion Group (ADG), an electronic mail (email) discussion list, has previously been shown to be a clinically oriented, cost-effective form of telemedicine. ADG is composed of an international collection of anesthesia providers.

3055. Ergonomics guidelines for designing electronic mail addresses. (PubMed)

Ergonomics guidelines for designing electronic mail addresses. The aim was to design a human-centred electronic mail (e-mail) address system based on networking technology and cognitive ergonomics. Based on the background literature and the results of users' survey, a conceptual model is developed for designing e-mail addresses. This model consists of e-mail address components of formats, domain length, meaningfulness, orientation and information type pertaining to recall, information (...) association and categorization. Five hypotheses were proposed to test the conceptual model, and four experiments were conducted with 85 participants to test the hypotheses. The dependent variables were performance time, error rate and degree of satisfaction, and the independent variables were components of the e-mail addresses. The main results indicate that for a recall task, significantly lower total performance time (26.2%) and error rate (75%) were found for the hybrid formats (digits and letters

3056. Heart murmurs recorded by a sensor based electronic stethoscope and e-mailed for remote assessment. (PubMed)

Heart murmurs recorded by a sensor based electronic stethoscope and e-mailed for remote assessment. Heart murmurs are common in children, and they are often referred to a specialist for examination. A clinically innocent murmur does not need further investigation. The referral area of the University Hospital is large and sparsely populated. A new service for remote auscultation (telemedicine) of heart murmurs in children was established where heart sounds and short texts were sent (...) as an attachment to e-mails.To assess the clinical quality of this method.Heart sounds from 47 patients with no murmur (n = 7), with innocent murmurs (n = 20), or with pathological murmurs (n = 20) were recorded using a sensor based stethoscope and e-mailed to a remote computer. The sounds were repeated, giving 100 cases that were randomly distributed on a compact disc. Four cardiologists assessed and categorised the cases as having "no murmur", "innocent murmur", or "pathological murmur", recorded
