This is the VOA Special English Technology Report.
A new survey finds that more than 80% of internet users in the United States search for health information on line.  The survey is from the Pure research centers internet and America Life Project and California Healthy Care Foundation.
Susan Afucs from the Pure Internet Project says Doctors are still the main source of health information. But the survey found that searching on line is one of the leading ways that people look for a second opinion.  
People are threefact checking what they have heard from the doctor. Our statics shows that people are still very likely to turn to health professional when they need diagnoses or are planning a treatment.
44% of people are actually looking for doctors or other providers when they search for health information on line. Another finding of the survey, two third of internet users look on line for information about the specific disease or medical condition.
The internet has also become an important source of emotional support for people with health problems. Susan Afucs says one in fifth internet users have gone on line to find other people who have the same condition.
It was more problem among people with more serious health issues. One in forth people within a chronic disease and it was basically of the charge to people with the very disease. They are so eager to find other people on line who share their health concerns.
A disease is considered rare if the facts fewer than 200,000 people world wide. The rise of social net working has made it easier for people with rare diseases to connect with each other and feel less along. Social net working is also changing the way some doctors and patients communicate with each other.
Doctor Jeff Livinsten operates a medical center for women in Ervin, Taxes. His office uses password protected software to share information with patients.
We provide the patients full access to their medical righter, anything I can see, the patients can see. All of their notes, all of their doctor visited right there, all of their labelcus right there.
Dr.Livinsten says the software has increased efficiency reduced costs and improved relations with patients.  
It just revolutionize the way we do health care.
His medical center also has a Face book page, a My space page and a Twitter feed.
