It can be easy for patients to go online and get all the information they could ever want on just about any topic. However, finding information and finding factual information are two very different things.

Mellanie True Hills, founder of StopAfib.org discussed how damaging false information can be for patients and how doctors can help them sort through mountains of data to help them during diagnosis and treatment. Hills spoke about this issue during the American College of Cardiology's (ACC) annual meeting in Chicago, Illinois.
