Health and the Mobile Difference
This week Susannah Fox addressed the Mayo Clinic’s Transform 2010: Thinking Differently about Health Care event and provided commentary on health care and Internet access, including mobile and social trends.
Mobile access is changing the way people seek and interact with information. Recent reports from the Pew Internet and American Life Project explore how mobile access to information is transforming the way people look for health information and support. Statistics show that more people are going online to look for health information. Information also suggests that many people seek health information and advice from social network sites. Becoming a part of the online conversation regarding health care will be important for health information providers in the coming years. Providing useful links to reliable online health information is a one way to become involved in the online health conversation.
