The Internet and Health
It seems that more adults are turning to the Internet for health concerns. The Internet and Health infographic provides a definition for online diagnoses, and discusses the percentage of people who utilize the Internet to diagnose medical conditions prior to seeking professional help from a clinician. In addition to utilizing the Internet to provide a diagnosis, the infographic provides statistics on those who self-track their health data, including metrics like weight, blood pressure, headache occurrence, diet, exercise and sleep patterns. The final element of the infographic depicts the availability and usage of peer-to-peer healthcare on the Internet.
