Email2MEDLINE Use by Rural Health Physicians in Remote Areas of the Philippines.
Email2MEDLINE was introduced as a health information access tool for rural physicians practicing in remote areas of the Philippines. Of the 33 doctors trained, 21 (69.7%) used it with 83 unique queries in a 2-month period. Mean usage was 3.89 (SD 5.55) per doctor. Most of the queries were on therapy (45.23%) and health-related but non-clinical issues (35.71%). Limited access to the Internet was the primary reason for not using the service.
