The relationship dynamic in the healthcare industry has flipped. Patients today are more self-reliant, informed, and comfortable operating independently to find information and services. This change has come as a direct result of the growing importance of technology in modern lives—consumers have simply grown accustomed to using digital networks to solve their problems. Ninety-three million Americans turned to the Internet to self-diagnose in 2013, and searching for health information is the 3rd most common online activity, according to a new infographic by R2integrated.

The infographic examines the digital habits and considerations that patients go through as they navigate through their decision-making journey—from brand awareness all the way to brand advocacy.
