Susannah Fox is Associate Director at Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project. She studies the cultural shifts taking place at the intersection of technology and health care. Her survey research has documented The Social Life of Health Information as well as the role of the internet among people living with chronic disease. Health professionals, friends, and family members remain central, but Dr. Google and online patient communities are gaining in influence, particularly due to the power of mobile. Patients and the people who love them are not just a target audience, but a resource for innovation and knowledge.
