Survey Reveals Consumer Interest in New Media Formats for Health Information From Hospitals
Date:11/3/2008

EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers report significant interest in online health videos on hospital websites, according to a recent survey by StayWell Custom Communications (SCC). However, while three in four consumers say they want to see online videos about health procedures on their hospital website, only one in four reports having viewed such a video.

Information on health and wellness on hospital websites is clearly a draw for consumers, according to the survey. Approximately two-thirds indicate a desire to view a health encyclopedia, and an equal number also want to see general wellness information on their hospital website. Animated illustrations about health conditions and procedures are of interest to 62% of consumers polled.

In addition, consumers report interest in wellness tools (54%) and more than half (51%) indicate they would like to see personalized health programs on their hospital website. Overall more than three in four (78%) consumers surveyed say they would be interested in receiving personalized health information from a health-related website. Half of those surveyed report they'd definitely be willing to complete an online health assessment in order to receive personal health information; 37% say they "maybe" would be willing. Only 16% indicate they would not be willing to provide personal health information via an online assessment.

Overall, the top reasons consumers cite for visiting their hospital website include:

-- Information about physicians (39%)

-- Information about health conditions and treatments for myself (29%)

-- Information about the quality of care offered at that hospital (27%)

-- Information about health conditions and treatment for someone else

(27%)

-- Tools that help me manage my health (23%)

"SCC prides itself on keeping a finger on the pulse of consumer preferences related to the delivery of health information," said StayWell C
