The first example of medical research conducted entirely over the internet has been carried out.

the researchers' use of the Internet for everything – from recruitment to patient consent to data collection – makes the study unique. Previous Internet-based trials used the Web for most, but not all, steps of the research process.

Internet-based studies tend to be cheaper and faster, but it was important to show you could still do "gold standard" quality research without meeting your subjects face-to-face.
