March 28th, 2013 by Patricia Donovan

The digital age is redefining healthcare and many factors are driving this medical revolution. This infographic from MDG Advertising shows that patients are now much more digitally active in their healthcare. Research reveals that 72 percent of U.S. adults have gone online to seek healthcare information in the last year, while one-third have searched the Web to figure out certain medical issues. The graphic shows that women are more inclined to seek health answers online and that more than 55 percent of medical Web searches are about specific diseases, 43 percent are related to medical treatments, and that weight loss and health coverage each account for one-quarter of Web inquiries.

It also points out that patients are coming together on social media sites to form communities for sharing their experiences, resources, and research. As a result, 40 percent of patients have posted comments about personal health experiences and 30 percent have consulted online reviews of healthcare services.
