The Trust Crisis in Healthcare

George D. Lundberg

Oxford University Press

Trustworthy information is a central requirement of a working healthcare system. This chapter describes how trust is important in medical communications, both in the published word and in medical information on the internet. It discusses the peer review system in the print journals and how the same is accomplished for the certain online sources through a code of ethics. It argues that the medical internet is fundamental to the evolving healthcare system of the future. It describes the central principles of such a system, called E-care. A list of action items for physicians to establish patient trust is included.

Keywords:   medical internet, medical peer review, code of ethics, e-care, medical communications
