As a patient, I really like and consistently use the patient portal. I can see my healthcare information and email simple questions back and forth with my PCP and the nurses. The attitude of physicians determines success of the patient portal, if you are engaged, the patients will be engaged. I live in a city where 99% of all the healthcare I received is within an integrated delivery network, so as I move from office to office, the information is instantly available and I don't have to answer the same questions over and over. As a patient, I feel I receive better care based on data. In my view, the computer has not interferred with the doctor-patient relationship.

Why don't you open a pt portal and see if pt. will use it. Why should I sell it? If it's so good they should want it! Maybe you'll find out the majority just want good health care where the Docs can look at all their data to give more targeted care.
