75 Percent of Patients Want Digital Health Services, Survey

75 Percent of Patients Want Digital Health Services, Survey | Digital Health | Scoop.it

According to a survey of thousands of patients in Germany, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, the adoption of digital health services remains low because existing services are either low quality or not meeting patients’ needs. 

 

Some executives in healthcare believe that, due to the sensitive nature of medical care, patients don’t want to use digital services except in a few specific situations; decision makers often cite data that point to relatively low usage of digital healthcare services In fact, the results of our survey reveal something quite different.

 

The reason patients are slow to adopt digital healthcare is primarily because existing services don’t meet their needs or because they are of poor quality.”

 

 

One of the more common myths about healthcare is that only younger generations want to use digital services. The survey also shows that patients from all age groups are more than willing to use digital services for healthcare. In fact, older patients (those over 50) want digital healthcare services nearly as much as the younger generation.

 

The result from the latest survey also indicates that the enthusiasm for mobile health has perhaps waned a bit over the years. Mobile health—the practice of healthcare supported by mobile devices—is often considered as the future of digital services in healthcare.
