by Internet Medical Society
Some of you -and several associations of patients- have contacted me worried about the quality of healthcare services provided online. The number of doctors and companies offering health services using Internet has grown dramatically during the last decade, and the quality of these services is poor in some cases.
As a society devoted to promote the safe and responsible practice of medicine online, I feel IMS should create a Committee for assessing these services. Please, all interested contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to create a working group. Our next tasks will be:
- create the criteria of good quality an online healthcare services should have.
- create a list of online healthcare service.
- search for funding to address this project
- start assessing sites.
