The Booming Business of mHealth App Marketing | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

“According to a recent report from eMarketer, health-related mobile apps are now being used by more than one-quarter of all app users on a regular basis.”

10 patient groups most likely to be mobile health users | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | 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 fibrosisGrowth hormone deficiencyAcneADD/ADHDHepatitis CMigraineCrohn’s diseaseChronic kidney diseaseGeneralized anxiety disorderBipolar disorder



It’s not surprising to see many chronic conditions on the list. It is very surprising, however, not to see conditions like diabetes, asthma and sleep disorders.

“Amen! RT @thibaudguymard: Digital health execs: Focus should be on consumer not technology http://t.co/RVYJFpCfLH #mhealth #hcsm #yam”

eMedToday's insight:

Part of the challenge is you have to have the technology disappear and you have to focus on something else,” O’Reilly said. “We feel strongly you have to focus on the consumer, very few product developers, very few companies, very few institutional health systems, very few doctors focus on the actual desires of the consumer — the patient as a consumer, and if you get that right, if you do what the consumer technology industry does instinctively and very intuitively, then you can start to break some of these barriers, but you have the get past the technology and focus on the right thing.”
