They are called  ‘E-patients’: People like yourself who use the Internet to manage their health online

People who search online, for health information do so:

  • To seek  health information
  • To make informed decisons
  • To access health services and resources

In the last twenty years there has been a surge in health information websites, with information from the common cold to cancer and heart disease.

Health education and not just information is taking health care to a new level. It is not surprising since according to researchers 61%  of women and 47% of men turn to the Internet for health information.  It would therefore,  make sense that health care begins there.

This blog like many other websites is a reflection of health education online, places where one can learn to self care at home.
