Equity and E-Health
E-Health and the Doctor-Patient Relationship

From the Paper:

"E-health refers to the convergence of various technologies. The American healthcare system is facing a reform of gigantic proportion as technology, especially the internet, changes how Americans seek information about their health. HIPPA once thought to create a blanket of privacy for healthcare information is now not the entire building but only the foundation for health privacy. This important legislation does not apply to health information and services offered through the Internet by non-healthcare professionals and similarly do not address the issues facing e-health."
