from By Scott E. Rupp
The news is in, and research suggests what we may have already known. Individuals 65 years and older do not use the internet for their healthcare searches, and the number adopting digital health tools remains low, according to a research letter published in the Journal of the Medical Association. The report shows 76 percent of the respondents used cellphones and 64 percent used computers in 2011, but only 16 percent obtained health information online.
