Inspire and empower eDocAmerica Web site users to take responsibility for their health status and improving their health Status by taking action to know their own personal health information and managing their personal health status.
• First and foremost, eDocAmerica is a Health Information Resource that provides clients and users information from reliable research and from appropriately licensed healthcare professionals. In short, eDocAmerica provides general health information content through a Static Web Site to the general internet public and Decision Support or Assistance through Dynamic Connectivity to groups of individual users.
• Health Information Content is basically a summary of health research communicated in response to a general or specific question
• Decision Support or Assistance is different from Health Information Content because it is addressed to a specific user question for personal health management and provides an individual user with other data they might want to know, questions to consider asking their healthcare provider and/or use in deciding what action(s) they are going to take in the future.
