Thanks, Helene. That was great. I’m writing an article about patients using the Internet for diagnosis, and I hadn’t seen this.

In Romania, they had a problem that patients didn’t visit their doctors when they felt ill. Instead they would Google their symptoms, go to the pharmacy, get the medications Dr. Google suggested (one big difference between the United States and other countries), and treat themselves. Of course, a good percentage of them ended up in the emergency room.
While we encourage patients to become knowledgeable about their diagnoses, the process and potential treatment plans, none of us would suggest that they also choose their own medicines and oversee their own treatment.
This brief but fascinating video shows how one healthcare system in Romania decided to address that problem. They challenged Internet visitors to take an “open book“ medical residency exam, the exact exam their doctors have to take. Enjoy.
