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.

  • carmen2u carmen2u This is an insightful presentation. Based on my understanding of the landscape, your findings parallel social media behavior among other patient communities within the chronic disease arena: they are havens for disease management advice and emotional support. This is the new wave of patient-empowered medicine. 1 year ago
