Digital doctoring
Mole is a board member of the Dutch Association for e-Health Ten years ago; he was the first doctor that started with e-mail consultations. When digital

doctoring was still controversial The National Association of General Practitioners found it "downright irresponsible" to act without the doctor had seen

them off. Asking patients
The tide has turned. The KNMG, the professional organization of physicians, has established guidelines for online contact between patient and physician. And

now the doctor gets paid for e-mail consultations: € 4.50 per consultation, as much as for a telephone consultation (rates January 2012 - end). GPs are not

obliged to communicate with patients. E-mail
In 2010 was estimated to be only 10 per cent of GPs the possibility. Robert Mol: "They are afraid that they will get even busier, but it really is not that

patients mail about every little thing, they have more trepidation I receive an average of two emails per day, that there could be many more... “The e-mail

consultation is not only fast and efficient, will Mol. "I notice that the patient also helps to get because they need to clearly describe what they suffer from. In an e-mail more insight into their complaints"
