PharmaLive, May 19, 2010

A national survey found that Americans rely highly on Google searches as a source of healthcare information. The survey, conducted in April 2010 by Capstrat and Public Policy Polling, finds 22% of respondents consider Google searches influential in seeking health information. The search engine ranked second only to doctors (44%) in reported influence and was named more than twice as often as nurses, pharmacists, advocacy groups and friends or family members.
