Driven to the Internet? Satisfaction With Physician-Patient Communication as a Predictor of Consumers’ Online Information Seeking

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Numerous scholars have investigated physician-patient communication. On a different plane, researchers have asked who seeks health information on-line and have begun to study why people might do so. These two streams of work largely have not intersected, however. We connect these two phenomena here, asking whether a person’s satisfaction with physician-patient communication is related to their on-line information seeking patterns. Specifically, using 2007 Health Information National Trend Survey data, which offers a nationally representative look at individual perceptions of interaction with the health care system and information seeking patterns, we predict two different dependent variables – reliance on physicians as a primary information source and reliance on the Internet as a primary information source – and find that satisfaction with physician-patient communication matters for both in a theoretically consistent manner.
