Lowell General Hospital of Lowell, Massachusetts, has created this site with the idea "that an informed patient is in the best position to make wise healthcare decisions in partnership with his or her physician." Interested users can take a heart test by answering a forms-based query and receiving their heart disease risk factor in email, ask questions of a doctor (in eight different specialty areas), or find information, including bibliographies and Internet links in 9 different health care areas. For those with strong stomachs, a video feed is provided of a surgeon's endoscope or laparoscope. A medical image archive (in 6 subject areas) is also available, as well as health education software.
