CHICAGO, July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vertical Web Media LLC, publisher of Internet Retailer, today launched InternetHealthManagement.com to provide news, analysis and research on how the internet and e-commerce technology are changing how consumers research, pay for and manage healthcare.
InternetHealthManagement.com and its weekly newsletter also will cover the significant role the internet and data management play in how providers such as hospitals and doctors deliver care and how insurers, employers and government agencies manage and pay for healthcare.
The potential size of this market is leading organizations of all types to invest heavily. Total spending on digital healthcare and e-commerce technology could top $32 billion annually within five years, according to investment banking firm Goldman Sachs.
"The same e-commerce technology and business processes that built online retailing into a $342 billion market will be used to rebuild fundamental components of the U.S. healthcare system," says Jack Love, chairman of Vertical Web Media and publisher of Internet Retailer.
Many players in the U.S. healthcare system are developing self-service, commerce-enabled desktop and mobile websites, with features that enable consumers to perform a wide range of transactions.
These transactions range from consumers using private and public healthcare exchanges to research, comparison shop and purchase health insurance to patients using provider web sites and apps to schedule and complete office visits—virtual and otherwise.
As e-commerce is new to healthcare, there remains a lack of comprehensive and quality information to educate executive decision makers on how they can use the internet and e-commerce to better serve consumers. InternetHealthManagement.com will fill that void.
"Readers at InternetHealthManagement.com will see detailed news and case studies on the leading organizations and executives excelling at healthcare e-commerce and digital healthcare," Love says.
