Trends in E-Patients and Health 2.0

21 May

Social media has changed the way things are done on this planet. 
Instead of looking around for an Expert to learn from, people are simply learning from each other. This has created a whole new dimension for spread of health related information.Patient communities are flourishing in an environment rich with social networks, both through mainline social communities and condition-specific communities. Such niche communities over time build up to be a great source of information. Increasingly, more and more people are turning to the internet as their primary source of health information.
