Preview of: Pew Study on Heath Care & Internet due out in May 2009 (will keep you updated on the release):
Some early findings of interest:
"People still use traditional ways to find out about health care (i.e. talk to friends, family members, books, etc.)"
"Most people are satisfied with PCs and other traditional means of finding health care information or providers."
"Wireless is additional source, but not a replacement of traditional sources."
"Mobile adoption could be a game changer."
"When people reach out for Health Care . . . they are looking for the human connection."
"People need the human touch."
"The industry must begin designing for collaboration and not just for transactions."
"Interest in Health Care . . . JOBS!!!"
"Talk about patients in the first person . . . health care is personal!"
"Health Care information explosion is overwhelming!"
"Health Professionals cannot do it alone."
The debate continues . . .
