Blogs and patients

Blogs and patients:"Blogs have increasingly become a popular part of the Internet. In the healthcare industry, blogs help track a patient's journey with chronic disease or procedures with lengthy recovery times, creating the ability for a patient to post their feelings and all the interactions that take place when facing certain decisions. The result is a patient's-eye view into what would be required with the procedure, and what to expect, valuable to health consumers in similar situations as well as their friends, families and other members of their support system. This interaction can be the deciding factor for many patients as they face choices about the treatment options available."
