Managing Your Health - US - January 2015
“How people manage their personal health is rapidly changing, due to advances in technology, a proactive mentality on the part of consumers, and a wide range of sources where people can get professional treatment.”
– Emily Krol, Health and Wellness Analyst
This report looks at the following issues:
- Retail health clinics are changing the healthcare landscape

Personal health management is taking on a new role. Several factors are impacting healthcare, resulting in an increased focus on consumers being proactive about their own health.

This comes at a time when the US population is experiencing significant growth among the older population, resulting in an increased demand for healthcare. Furthermore, innovations in technology have made it easier for people to keep track of and manage their own health, as well as interact with a professional.
This report will explore consumer attitudes and behaviors toward managing personal health as well as usage of professional healthcare services.
