Doctors at the University of Iowa Health Care system are now taking questions from people nationwide via the internet medical site AmericasDoctor.com. Spokesperson Rita Liddell says they’ve signed a contract with the site to provide “live” sessions on the internet on various medical topics. At the site, physicians will answer consumer questions right away. However, don’t expect to use the site to save money and avoid seeing your own doctor. Doctors on the internet site will not be allowed to diagnose illnesses on-line. Liddell says U-of-I doctors can answer general questions. Liddell says it’s just one form of medical information offered by the site. There will be a library on the site allowing you to look up medical information. Liddell says several other prestigious medical institutions also have agreements with the website. She says it helps give them more exposure. The U-of-I Healthcare agreement with AmericasDoctor.com is for one year.
