72 percent of European online consumers (ages 18 and older) are social health users*. According to the new Cybercitizen Health® Europe 2012 study from healthcare market research and advisory firm Manhattan Research, 44 percent of European online consumers used social networking websites for health, 33 percent read or posted patient testimonials and 34 percent used health ratings or reviews. The study surveyed 3,020 consumers (ages 18 and older) in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom online in October 2012, on their use of digital media and technology for health and its influence on treatment and product decisions.
Additionally, the study found that adoption of social media for health varies by country. For example, compared with the other surveyed countries online consumers in Spain and Italy are most likely to use Facebook for health, while health ratings and reviews see strongest adoption in Germany.

"Très simple à utiliser, plutôt basique, Medaplix cible particulièrement ceux qui débutent en informatique et les médecins généralistes mobiles (dont les femmes) qui travaillent aussi beaucoup à la maison…Il est prêt pour le P4P ce qui ne gâte rien. Son prix est un argument très fort et devrait bousculer le marché. Comme dans le low-cost (Free), il faut installer tout tout seul. Mais c’est facile à condition d’avoir une bonne connexion Internet."
Health care is transforming quickly due to mobile and web technologies. The driving forces behind this development are not the traditional players, rather they are start-ups and software experts. To keep track of innovation, Health 2.0 held its annual European session in Berlin last week.
