Abstract

A three years project, funded by the Public Health Ministry of the Italian government and named “Teleconsultation in Oncology”, was concluded in the Province of Trento (North-east Italy) in November 2000. The aim of the project was to implement a Distributed Oncological Teleconsultation System (e-DOTS), based on a clinical digital record and on an application for sharing at distance digital records in asynchronous/synchronous mode, to provide non-surgical oncological consultation to district general hospitals lacking specialist oncological services on site [1]. This study describes the results of surveys conducted on users’ satisfaction (38 clinical physicians and 47 nurses from Divisions of Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Dermatology, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Geriatrics, Internal Medicine and Surgery): in particular, a formal evaluation has been carried out to compare perceived advantages and disadvantages with respect to actual usage, beliefs and attitudes towards the system - clinical digital record (CCODM) and tele-consultation (TC) - and expected benefits versus perceived ones
