Dr. Ted Palen is an internist at Kaiser Permanente Colorado in Denver. He says it's pretty common for him to see a patient in his office and then think, "You know, we could've handled this by e-mail."
Palen, who's also a researcher, wanted to see if offering patients online access to their doctors would mean they'd need to come in to the office less often. Previous studies found around a 20 percent drop in patient visits once they had online access.
But Palen's much larger study, just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, showed that patients with online access actually scheduled more visits.
"The finding really did surprise us, this association between online access and an increase in in-person services," Palen says.
Why the increase? Palen says it could be that patients who signed up for online access were sicker than those who didn't, although his study tried to control for that.

"The results of the study surprised us because we went in with hypothesis that, and it had been written about in several other informatics type publications, online access may substitute for the need for in-person services," Dr. Ted Palen, a clinician researcher at Kaiser Permanente, told Healthcare Informatics.
