The purpose of this paper is to describe nurse functions in electronic communication with patients in the HeartCare project. HeartCare is a computerized internet-based CABG home recovery program consisting of information resources and access to a nurse via electronic mail. The nurse's role consisted of monitoring and responding to patient-generated communication daily. This analysis used a heuristic framework derived from nurse functions the HeartCare system was designed to support: assessing, providing information, support, evaluation, referral, and system guidance. Electronic messages, (366) between patient and nurse were subject to content analysis. Messages were read, coded and placed into categories according to the nurse function performed. Coded messages revealed the nurse used all nursing functions outlined in the framework. The asynchronous nature of electronic mail may result in delayed communication. Concerns about incomplete data required the nurse to make further inquiry prior to responding. Nurse use of electronic mediums to deliver health care is rapidly expanding. Our data indicate nurses can provide information, make assessments, diagnoses, provide support and referral using this medium. However, patient evaluation is more difficult in the absence of an "in person" contact as patients may choose not to keep the nurse abreast of their progress.
