No fee for specialists
Frank also Bosch, internist in Reinstate Hospital in Arnhem, sees many advantages in communicating by e-mail. "I started it thirteen years ago. It is the way

to keep up with patients without the rest of my work being compromised. Touch"
Unlike GPs are specialists not charge for e-mail consultations. Bosch: "But I feel more in control of my own time, and that's worth a lot to me now I'm

hardly disturbed when I'm in intensive care or dialysis department at work.".
Results and scans
90 percent of Bosch's patients make use of the possibility to mail it. "They get sent. The results of investigations by e-mail go much faster, they do not

need to come to the hospital." Bosch also sends lab results and scans it. "I have a lot of chronically ill patients. Twice after they catch on what values

they need care. They see for themselves whether they are stable. Most find it exciting to be with their treatment. So involved"
Mail with the doctor, how to do it
• Not all GPs mail with their patients, so inquire in advance if your doctor approves.
• Ask what method he or she follows in online contact, such as the period within which you can expect. Response time • Ask about the issues and problems you

can mail. And whether it is objectionable if you consecutively mail several times a small question
