Primary Outcome Measures

  • seeking information using MedlinePlus [ Time Frame: clicks will be tracked on the website when they occur ]

Enrollment: 907
Study Start Date: May 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: October 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: email
Patients randomized to this arm will receive an email health information prescription.
Other: health information prescription

Patients randomized to the email arm will receive a health information prescription via email on a health care topic following their clinic visit. Patients randomized to the paper arm will receive a health information prescription on paper on a health care topic following their clinic visit.

Active Comparator: paper
Patients randomized to this arm will receive a paper health information prescription.
Other: health information prescription

Patients randomized to the email arm will receive a health information prescription via email on a health care topic following their clinic visit. Patients randomized to the paper arm will receive a health information prescription on paper on a health care topic following their clinic visit.

Detailed Description:

The specific aim of this proposed pilot study is to compare two standardized processes (paper and electronic) to deliver a customized MedlinePlus health information prescription.
Primary Hypothesis. Individuals in the paper prescription group will be just as likely to seek information using MedlinePlus compared with individuals in the group who receive the same customized information through an email prescription.
Secondary Hypothesis. Individuals in the paper prescription group will be just as likely to have successful behavioral outcome measures as those in the group who receive the same customized information through an email prescription.
