ABSTRACT
Abstract: People's questions about health not only reveals their knowledge of medical concerns, but may also reflect on the adequacy of the health information system to provide answers. In this study we collected and analyzed 255 health questions from adults in a discount department store in a mid-sized town in middle America. Results suggest that large portions of the public do not know how to promote and maintain health and are looking for answers that the current health care system does not easily provide. This can be damaging to both health and the economy. This paper provides recommendations for how to improve the health information system based on an analysis of these questions.
