FACTS AND STATS

According to Manhattan Research following are the top trends for e-health marketers to consider in 2006.

Search engines will be essential for physicians and consumers: Consumers are 30% more likely to begin their online health session with a search engine than by going to a known website.

The broadband revolution: For the first time, the number of consumers with broadband exceeds those with a dial-up connection.

"Alternative" media is no longer alternative: The number of consumers relying on podcasts, video, and blogs will experience double-digit growth this year.

Prescription product sites will be viable destinations: Product sites, such as those for Lipitor, Allegra, and Nexium, are each generating annual traffic of at least 2 million visitors - more hits than their call centers get phone calls.

Europe is untapped: With new offerings, European physicians will begin to use the same professional resources that U.S. physicians use.
