Infographics: Healthcare Communication for the Digital Age

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Infographics are an innovative and engaging method of visually communicating information in a colourful and concise manner. There has been substantial interest in their use within the commercial and health sectors.

Healthcare professionals already use infographics to communicate medical information to their patients. A firm grasp of health information enhances patients’ decision making capabilities and may improve the practitioner-patient relationship. Infographics can also be used at the population level for public health messages.

Because healthcare practitioners are likely to be consulted during their creation and use, this article aims to walk the reader through a number of different infographics in order to outline how they may be used to communicate healthcare information.

The importance of words such as ‘infographic’ and ‘communicate’ is emphasised by their size, location, and colour.
