Surveys on the use of the Internet for healthcare purposes

 

HON surveys help to monitor the growing trend towards electronic processing, publication, dissemination and use of medical and health-related information.
This trend affects the consumers of healthcare as much as its providers and is causing important changes in traditional doctor-patient relationships as well as in the way medicine is taught and practised.

Undertaken periodically, HON Surveys are designed to improve our understanding of Internet usage for medical purposes. The results help us and the healthcare community more effectively to meet the needs of users and improve the quality of medical services on the World Wide Web. The questionnaires are brief and multiple-choice: you will find them as well as the detailed results on:

HON Surveys: Home
HON Surveys: Analysis tools

 

Exerpt from the March-April'99 Overview report:

"Of the record 4,368 persons answering the latest survey, March-April 1999, 60% were healthcare professionals. This appears to confirm an earlier trend. Though this proportion slipped to 45% in May-June 1998, the first and second HON surveys showed 63% and 61% healthcare professionals respectively. The primary place to get connected to the Internet was given as "home", maintaining its pre-eminence with 68 %. There is some decline in the percentage of female respondents to the March-April 1999 survey (46%) when compared to the previous two surveys (57% in May-June 1998, 40% in August-September 1997). "

Health On the Net Foundation hope that the results of these surveys will help HON and other medical Web sites meet the needs of the Net community more effectively.

Realising the anticipated benefits of the World Wide Web and on-line services will require continual surveys on the use of the Internet for healthcare purposes as well as sound. HON continually seeks partnerships with commercial and non-commercial organisations to ensure that the results of its surveys remain accessible to all as a universal public service.
