Second opinions given online help patients, study says

By Liz Kowalczyk, Globe Staff, 3/29/2003

ince several Harvard teaching hospitals began offering second opinions
online -- a legally tricky and controversial practice -- Harvard doctors
have changed the treatment plans for 90 percent of those patients and
revised the diagnosis in 5 percent of cases, according to results published
today in the British Medical Journal.

Legal restrictions on practicing medicine across state lines and
disagreement over whether it's helpful for physicians to offer detailed
opinions without actually seeing patients have kept many major medical
centers from jumping into online consulting.

But Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham & Women's Hospital, along
with doctors at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, decided to launch a service in
summer 2001. Specialists review a patient's history and test results for his
primary care doctor online, for fees ranging from $225 to $600 per case
