Several Internet sites keep hospital patients connected with friends and family

People seeking information and support during a medical crisis often turn to the Internet, using it to look for the latest research about their particular disease or join an online support group with others who share their condition. Other patients take the online experience a step further, creating their own Web pages about their disease, illness, or condition. Several Web sites now allow hospitals to capitalize on this growing trend and partner with patients who want to build their own customized online pages while they are hospitalized. Hospitals provide the platform that allows patients to create their pages and share the link with family and friends.
