Two studies on consumer information search and decision strategies involved in the selection of family health care providers are reported. The first study examined the selection process for both adults and children within the family. Factors associated with dissatisfaction with provider were identified. The second study explored differences among individuals in self-reported presence of a regular health care provider and use of recent innovations in health care such as walk-in clinics and HMOs.
