Retail clinic patients are more likely to view drug review/ratings websites

The 2015 MARS Consumer Health Study has new data specific to healthcare facilities.  According to the study, 1 in every 10 adults that received medical or health-related services in the last 12 months did so at a retail health or in-store clinic. Of these adults, 82% said they used the internet in the last 30 days for some type of health or wellness activity.

When seeking healthcare information online, adults that received services at a retail clinic are 46% more likely than the average adult to use drug review/ratings websites. Other online information sources this group is more likely to view include reference websites with user-generated content (e.g. Wikipedia), insurance provider websites, and diet or fitness websites.
