ePatients: Healthcare Consumerism
and the Internet
80% of adult Internet users in the U.S. have searched for health-related information on-line, half of them for data on prescription or OTC drugs. For 31 million of them, the Web is their first stop when considering health issues, and for patients with chronic conditions like asthma, diabetes and hypertension, interactive health applications delivered over the Web provide more than data, they support therapy.
