Consumer Health Informatics

Consumer health informatics represents a recent and growing movement in health care. It seeks to empower consumers of health care through various methods of tailoring information to different socio-economic classes, education levels, healthcare information, etc. Health care professionals must seek to understand not only the information they are passing along but also those to whom they are passing the information. They also must seek to teach consumers to learn- in other words, raise the level of health literacy in every interaction with consumers they have.
