eHealth News Portal has a news article named “Google Trends and eHealth” presenting the new Google service named Google Trends. As an example of the new service, we have entered four topics: eHealth, telemedicine, medical informatics and health informatics in order to identify how often they’ve been searched for on Google over time.
The obtained results will not be discussed or analysed, please just pay attention that eHealth term become more and more popular during the last months.
You can compare up to five terms by separating each term with a comma. To compare trend info for “ehealth” and “telemedicine” for example, you’d simply enter “ehealth, telemedicine” and click on “Search Trends”.
You are encouraged to use this service but please note bellow Google statement “As a Google Labs product, it is still in the early stages of development. Also, it is based upon just a portion of our searches, and several approximations are used when computing your results.”
