A survey conducted by Manhattan Research found that only 31% of
U.S. physicians used e-mail to communicate with their patients.
Even fewer have begun offering "e-visits" via email and web, though
insurers seem increasingly inclined to reimburse them for such
care. Physicians who don't use email say that they can't afford to
invest the time to write email, an activity for which they aren't
paid, and also fear that patients will abuse the medium.
