Everyday I get to learn about new articles and websites that are claiming to have reputable health information.
Two articles recently caught my eye while I was spending some time on Twitter. First, an op-ed piece was published on Time.com discussing how patients and doctors perceive the use of the online health information. The article was closely followed by the results of a recent PEW research study which stated that 80% of Americans used the internet to “prepare for or recover from” their doctor visit.
The results of the PEW study were less than surprising to me. Everyday I have a concerned mom or anxious dad refer to something they have read online.
