As reported in iHealthBeat today, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center’s Web site provides data on the percentage of patients who experienced symptom relief after surgery and whether they would chose surgery again. Patients use hospital laptops to complete surveys that are used to compile the data. Physicians at the medical center said the Web site resulted in fewer surgeries because the decision to operate is based more on patient preference than surgeon preference.
