Summary: How do people use our information? We’re often asked who our visitors are and what they’re looking for. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. We have a system of Web analytics that lets us see, in some cases, where you’re coming from, depending on your internet configuration. It will also let us see what you’re doing here — though of course it doesn’t give us your name, address and phone number. We wouldn’t want them anyway. So: How do people use our information? Here’s a snapshot in time, from a couple of hours on a Wednesday afternoon (New York time).
A person at Johns Hopkins spent about 10 minutes reading our blog post about medical coding.
A person at Harvard Business School spent a lot of time here researching how much STD testing costs.
A person at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas spent a few minutes researching the price of blood tests.
A person in San Antonio on a mobile device (phone or tablet) spent more than 15 minutes looking for a free or low-cost mammogram.
A person from the Defense Department researched the cost of a dental exam. Hey, don’t federal employees have dental insurance?
More to come later.
