People don't use health apps until they get sick

People don't use health apps until they get sick | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Back in March 2013, Research2Guidance counted in the neighborhood of 100,000 health, fitness and wellness apps in the Apple App Store and Google Play. That number almost certainly has increased since then.

Today, consumer health engagement company HealthMine said that while 64 percent of Americans own smartphones, just 18 percent of the general population enjoy learning health, wellness and lifestyle information via mobile apps. That’s based on a survey of 1,200 people by the Dallas-based company.

And then comes the money quote from the HealthMine press release: “Mobile health is still far from broad engagement—unless you are sick.” That’s because another HealthMine survey of 509 people with diabetes or pre-diabetes from August found that 42 percent manage their condition with mobile blood-sugar monitors, while 39 percent use mobile monitors for blood pressure.
