Dealing with digitally-empowered patients
Orthopedics Today, April 17, 2008
Scott Haig, MD, recently moderated a round table with four orthopedic surgeons about how to deal with the digitally-empowered patient. Some physicians viewed digital empowerment as a good thing, while others raised concerns about know-it-all patients. Physicians in the roundtable discuss how patient empowerment by the Internet, as well as other factors, is changing their current practice and what they see in their future.
