The Internet is revolutionizing healthcare. An Ipsos-Reid survey found that more Canadians have looked for online health information more than any other online activity – Americans and Europeans are also looking more and more to the Web for health information, services and tools. According to the Boston Consulting Group, 80% of online adults in the U.S. use the Internet to look for health information; and 96% of all physicians used Internet technology.
Prescient consultants have worked on planning and implementation projects for a diverse range of clients including the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Blue Cross Blue Shield (MN), Heart & Stroke Foundation, Ontario Public Health and others. Prescient has won 14 awards including the 2004 Webby Award (the Oscar of the Internet), for our planning, design and operation of HealthyOntario.com.
