A recent survey looked at the question ” What percentage of Adults in the U.S. look for their healthcare information online?”. This has been an ongoing study with comparisons between years as more people become tech saavy.
Where as 51% of adults searched the web in 2004 and 27% in 1998, a whopping 76% of adults now search the web for health information. Of these adults 86% stated that it was helpful and worthwhile.
Perhaps this will increase further as copays rise and available physician offices become scarce.
Will this be how you will pursue your healthcare?
