Online patient portals are increasingly important for doctor-patient communication and access to health care information. But patient portals could widen the gap in health disparities. Patients with low health literacy, less education and who are African American were much less likely to use these portals compared with white patients and those who were more health literate. These people lose the opportunity to easily engage their doctor about health concerns or medications, quickly refill prescriptions and get lab results, authors of a new report say.

Researchers develop new computer-based vision screening test for young children
(Elsevier Health Sciences) Many eye disorders in young children are asymptomatic and may remain undetected without testing. Since effective treatments are available for many of those conditions, early identification and intervention are critical to prevent potentially permanent vision problems. A new report published in the Journal of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus describes the effectiveness of a new computer-based vision-screening test, the Jaeb Visual Acuity Screener, which is suitable for use in schools and pediatrician's offices.

Cell-assisted lipotransfer: Safety not demonstrated
(Deutsches Aerzteblatt International) In reconstructive and esthetic medicine, a technique called cell-assisted lipotransfer, i.e., the grafting of the patient's own adipose tissue to another site in the body after mixing with autologous stem cells, is being increasingly used and aggressively promoted. This technique has not been shown to yield better outcomes than conventional lipotransfer without cell enrichment, as discussed by Soraya Grabin and coauthors in a current article in Deutsches Ärzteblatt International.
