PATIENTS, DOCTORS TALK ONLINE

UC Davis Medical Group has implemented a special Web-based messaging system that permits patients and doctors to essentially conduct an "office visit" online, improving both communication and service.

UC Davis patients are requesting online consultations, sending questions, renewing prescriptions and scheduling appointments via "webVisit (tm)" as part of the special messaging system provided by RelayHealth Corp., based in Emeryville, Calif. Doctors are dispensing advice, answering questions, providing patient-education messages and sending laboratory results.

Use of RelayHealth began as a pilot program at the Folsom, Calif., clinic about a year ago. It is now used at all the medical group offices and is being expanded to all UC Davis Medical Center's hospital-based clinics by the end of this year.
