20 cool infographics on healthcare

Here are 20 infographics related to healthcare and made in 2012. Yes, two years old. Yet some of them pretty cool in terms of design and statistics that can be borrowed for presentations, and some are made to be actual in the long run. In any case, I found that gallery of designs and numbers inspiring.

I liked #5 — HOW BIG DATA FLOWS IN HEALTHCARE — it even shows the table what petabyte and exabyte are (handy ūüôā ) and where data are generated, flow and can be potentially used.

#2 — The Future of Healthcare Technology Over A 30 Year Span —¬†would be curious to look at in a few years.

#4 – How patients learn in the digital age from HealthEdAcademy — contains a curious phrase “Healthcare extenders becoming the search engines for patients”. 59% of healthcare extenders say that patients bring information from the Internet to discuss , and 30% say that patients cannot find reputable information on the Internet.

#6 provides data from surveying 3,015 U.S. practicing physicians. 62% of them owned a tablet, and half of tablet-owners used it at the point-of-care. On average, physicians spent 11 hours per week online for professional purposes, and oncologists 17 hours.

#9 lists top 20 most popular EMR solutions and major players on this market in 2013: eClinicalWorks, McKesson, Cerner, Epic, Allscripts, etc.

#15 from AlliedHealthWorld.com¬†provides¬†that “more than 40% of consumers say that information found via social media affects the way they deal with their health.”

#17 from iCare.com gives promising numbers on using Cloud in health care.
