The consumer's guide to healthcare
Everyone will take healthcare journeys in their lifetime.
Given that healthcare experiences are universal, it is surprising how little preparation we receive for them. The internet has put vast amounts of information at our fingertips but when to question, what to ask and who to trust are not always obvious.
The goal of HEALTH ON THE WEB is to bridge gaps in consumer healthcare knowledge and preparation, with a focus on information that is important, less well-known and actionable. This information is supported by and linked to authoritative sources. The best way to use HEALTH ON THE WEB is to read through the website’s Guides now to become aware of issues that may arise, then refer back to the Guides and Key Websites as needed.
