To the Editor.—CHESS, the Comprehensive Health Enhancement Support System, provides patient education through a personal computer in the home. Patients read detailed articles, tutorials about services, and brief answers to many questions; anonymously question experts; communicate with and read accounts of other patients; monitor health status; and receive help making and implementing decisions (http://chess.chsra.wisc.edu).
