My friends at Enspektos contacted me last week about their new infographic – Digital Media and Healthcare Providers: What They Believe | What They Do. Based on a study conducted by Enspektos, the infographic explores how health providers perceive and use digital and social media technologies. It also compares and contrasts physician online activities versus nurses and pharmacists. In total, 308 physicians, nurses and pharmacists participated in the study. As you go through the data you’ll see that there are some fascinating differences in the ways doctors and nurses perceive the credibility of online sources of information. According to this study, doctors have a lot more confidence in social media than nurses do. It appears that nurses, overall, are more skeptical of online sources of information (websites, social media and search engines). Take a look at the infographic and let me know what you think of these findings.
Below is the infographic without the SlideShare window:
