10 patient groups most likely to be mobile health users | Inventing the Future | Scoop.it
People living with cystic fibrosis, growth hormone deficiencies and acne were among the most likely to report using their smartphones to find health information in a new survey from Manhattan Research.Based on phone and online surveys of more than 8,600 U.S. adults, the firm estimated that some 95 million Americans look for health information on their smartphones — 25 percent more than were doing so last year.The firm found that adoption of mobile solutions varied among patient groups. These patient groups were the ones most likely to report using mobile health solutions:
- Cystic fibrosis - Growth hormone deficiency - Acne - ADD/ADHD - Hepatitis C - Migraine - Crohn’s disease - Chronic kidney disease - Generalized anxiety disorder - Bipolar disorderIt’s not surprising to see many chronic conditions on the list.
