For all the potential of the Internet to erase old physician doubts about integrating information technology into everyday practice, scant few doctors have embraced it. A study by WebsurveyMD.com, a market-research organization, finds that physicians have little interest in Internet-based medical applications and are skeptical about the Internet's potential benefits to health care delivery.

When asked an open-ended question to name the "killer application" that could change medical practice most or improve quality of care, 21% said "online access to medical records."
