Talk about profound statements. The AMA has come out and stated publicly that:
“While immediate access to online information has been of great benefit to patients and health care professionals, the American Medical Association is greatly concerned that a substantial proportion of health information on the Internet might be inaccurate, erroneous, outdated, misleading, or fraudulent, and thereby pose a threat to patients and public health.”
Welcome, AMA, to the internet age and the year 1999. You really are in touch with the pulse of today’s doctors, huh? I guess their next warning will be about the Y2K issue with our computers?
