The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Using the Internet to complement healthcare

    No, I’m not referring to this blog. 😉

    “Two Web sites called My HealtheVet (one is a pilot project with more features) gives participating patients access to some of their medical records. Via the Internet, they read their doctor?s summary of a visit and see test results.

    They can even enter data such as blood-sugar level, blood pressure, or weight and create graphs that help them follow their progress. Consumer Reports summarizes the service.

    The latest home screen even has an article about tai chi.

    The disconnect between patients’ desire to make better use of the Internet and actual services offered by their healthcare providers has been discussed here before.

    Progress, at least for vets, is being made.
