November 15, 2002

Boise, Idaho - The most significant impact of information therapy on a dermatology practice will be extending the doctor's office into the patient's home, said Donald W. Kemper, chief executive officer of Healthwise, Inc., a healthcare decision-making company. Several years ago Kemper coined "information therapy," or "Ix." The term refers to the provision of current, evidence-based information to patients and their caregivers at each step of diagnosis and treatment.
