Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Online health communities provide a means for patients and their families to learn about an illness, seek and offer support, and connect with others in similar circumstances. Changes in the health care system coupled with increased infiltration and use of the Internet have resulted in heavier reliance on the Internet for disease and health education. Eighteen percent of American adult Internet users currently go online to find health care information for themselves and their loved ones, with health searches one of the most popular uses of the Internet. Existing medical websites, such as WebMD, have recognized that they will have more visitors if they offer interactive community features such as discussion or Internet forums.
