INFOGRAPHIC: mHealth

Have a look at this great infographic about the US physician use of mobile technology. Some striking figures:

  • Only 39% communicate online with patients;
  • 53% of all clinicians use tablets daily. That’s an increase of 19% in comparison with 2012;
  • 78% of the U.S. consumers are interested in mHealth solutions;
  • 88% of the doctors would like their patients to monitor their health at home, especially their weight, blood sugar and vital signs;
  • Only 28% of the smartphone users and 18% of the tablet users say that they are “very satisfied” with the quality of medical apps that are currently available;
  • 13% of the patients have accessed, stored or transmitted personal health information in the past year, 48% of them are interested in doing so;

Let’s face it: people are ready to use mhealth tools…and our tools are ready too!

  1. This is so interesting, I have been considering ideas of how to help people using technology. As a long time Home Care Nurse my experience could help people w/information, advice, direction. It’s good to know it is becoming a more accepted manor of communication & assistance.
    Thank you!
