What are some of the challenges of delivering medical information online?
Consider the benefits and challenges of providing information to patients via the web. Electronic product information (ePI), started becoming available in the EU late last January.
The approach to delivering up-to-date medical information is being outlined by European authorities. This action helps medical professionals prescribe to patients while at the same time educating the patients themselves.
Regulations require this information to be on paper-form, but through electronic summaries, it is much more accessible. These benefits include the ability to search desired information, automatic updates, and access to audio or video content.
