Jane Sarasohn-Kahn (@healthythinker) summarises some data from a recent Manhattan Research report:

 

* 14% of health-social media folks are “health-sharers” who have posted an entry or comment on a health blog, a message on a health message board or online community, a patient testimonial, or health ratings online (sub population of health social media users).
* 26% are mobile health users, performing a health-related activity on a mobile phone in the past 12 months, such as used a search engine to find health information; sent data tracked for managing a medical condition to their doctor or nurse; tracked and managed a medical condition; used a prescription or refill reminder service; used prescription drug coupons or other discounts; used recipes, meal planners, or nutrition trackers; used exercise programs; used a community, group or support network for health; used a symptom checker; received health reminders or alerts; managed insurance benefits; located a doctor or health service; read health news; or other health activities.
* 30% are online health video watchers, viewing online health video in the past 12 months, such as videos about diseases or conditions, health news, prescription drugs or treatments, well-being or healthy living, exercise or fitness, patients discussing their condition or treatment, healthcare professionals discussing conditions or treatments, or medical procedures.
