Learn About the Rise of the E-Patient

Posted by on November 19th, 2009 Posted in: Hospital Libraries, Social networking


Did you know that close to 20% of adults searching online for health information visit Internet and social networking sites to talk with medical experts and other patients? These e-patients are looking for tools to connect and share their medical data online. Listen to the National Public Radio interview with Susannah Fox of the Pew Internet and American Life Project regarding this growing trend.

Also, learn how librarians can find new ways to engage e-patients and their families with the Pew Internet online presentation The Rise of the E-Patient: Trends in the use of digital technology for health purposes.
