Psoriasis is the most prevalent autoimmune disease in the US, afflicting 7.5 million people. Depending on the severity, psoriasis can cause both extreme physical discomfort in patients as well as psychological issues. Healthcare market research and strategic advisory firm Manhattan Research and online patient community network Inspire partnered on a study to explore the role of social media in the lives of psoriasis patients. The study was conducted online among 317 psoriasis patients from the Inspire/National Psoriasis Foundation’s TalkPsoriasis community in Q2 2012. Lack of support from family and friends drives use of social media to an extent. Among surveyed psoriasis patients who disagree they have lots of support from family and friends when it comes to dealing with and managing psoriasis, half say they use psoriasis online communities regularly on a long-term basis, compared with just under one-third of surveyed psoriasis patients who agree they have this type of support.

    • VISUALIZED BY:PsoriasisSocial Media TrendsA study from Inspire andManhattan Research
    • Psoriasis is the most prevalent autoimmune disease in the United States, afflicting an estimated sevenand a half million people. Depending on the severity and location of the disease, psoriasis can causeboth extreme physical discomfort in patients as well as psychological issues, especially in social anddating scenarios.Healthcare market research and strategic advisory firm Manhattan Research and online patient communitynetwork, Inspire, partnered on a study to explore the role of social media in the lives of psoriasis patients.The study was conducted online among 317 psoriasis patients from the Inspire/National PsoriasisFoundation’s TalkPsoriasis community (http://www.inspire.com/groups/talk-psoriasis) in Q2 2012. “Psoriasis is a serious disease that impacts the individual physically, socially, financially, and psychologically. The more that people with psoriasis are able to connect with others and find support through platforms like social media, the less isolating the disease can be.” —Catie Coman, Vice President of Marketing Communications at the National Psoriasis FoundationKey questions explored in the research include —To what extent are psoriasis patients incorporating social media into their lives, and for whatreasons are they using it?How do older and younger patients differ in their use of social media?Does psoriasis severity and perceived support from others affect social media reliance?
    • Health social media landscape Social health adoption 2012 Adoption of health-related social media “The National Psoriasis Foundation was an early adopter of social media. We founded theIn millions of U.S. adults(ages 18+) 2011 NPF online patient community nearly 10 years ago and it 2010 continues to be very active. 2008 107 109 TalkPsoriasis receives nearly 1 million unique visitors 2007 89 each year who come to the 63 site in search of connection, 38 information, and support.” —Catie Coman, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at the National Psoriasis Foundation Source: Manhattan Research, Cybercitizen Health® U.S. 2007-2012 Consumer adoption of health-related user-generated content has grown steadily over recent years as this type of media has become more integrated into the consumer experience online. Additionally, research shows that consumers are at least open to, if not in favor of pharma’s participation in social media. According to Manhattan Research’s ePharma Consumer® study, 42 percent of online consumers (and 48 percent of online psoriasis patients) agree that pharmaceutical companies should be involved in online health communities for consumers.

    • To what extent are psoriasis patients incorporating social mediainto their lives, and for which reasons are they using it? Surveyed psoriasis patients are avid users of both general and psoriasis-related social media, with 70 percent of this audience using any type of online community, social network, message board, or blog at least several times per week, and 44 percent using psoriasis-specific social media multiple times per week.
