OBJECTIVE: To investigate the most common health topics researched on a professional health website (https://www.zdravobudi.hr/) by the number of page-views based on the sex and age of the viewer. DESIGN AND METHODS: Page views on a health website that included articles on various specialties were analyzed using appropriate software. The total number of page-viewers (100%) was analyzed regarding the preferred health topics based on page opening from January 1 through December 31, 2016. Predictable statistical methods were used to analyze the data. RESULTS: Among page-viewers, 75.6% were female and 24.4% were male. The majority of participants of both genders were between 25-34 years of age (37%); the fewest participants of both genders were ≥65 years of age. Preferred health topics and daily number of page-viewers who clicked on the pages included gynecology (9642), psychiatry (6496), cardiology (5206), urology (3109), nutrition (2803), rheumatology (2678), dermatology (2088), epidemiology, gastroenterology (1289), neurology (828), oncology (486), physiatry (400), pulmonology (278), endocrinology (204), pharmacology (179), dentistry (151), general medicine (89), nephrology (62), and family medicine (46). The most interesting gynecological articles were posted in late summer (August, nearly 1000 page-viewers) and late autumn (November, between 900 and 1000 page-viewers). The most viewed gynecological topics were contraception, unplanned pregnancy, and prevention. CONCLUSIONS: Modern communication techniques, such as websites and social media, influence every aspect of human life, both professional and personal. Regarding websites containing health information, it should be emphasized that it is crucial to inform visitors to view only health content authored by health care professionals. Otherwise, so-called 'health' advice could be inaccurate, and sometimes may even result in harm. Analysis of the professional health website confirmed that the column that garnered the most interest was the gynecology column, authored by a gynecologist. Because no specific population was targeted (the visitors were of different genders, ages, and educational statuses), the content on the website was written in a simple and widely understandable style, with medical titles placed in brackets. Presenting health material in a reader-friendly manner turned out to be the best way to get closer to the population. This study confirms our belief that correct information from medical specialists plays a huge role in education and sensibilization of various populations to various health topics, and the gynecological content authored by a gynecologist is the most-often visited, read, and commented upon. The authors declare no conflicts of interest.
