The top 10 patient groups most likely to use their smartphones to find health information

The top 10 patient groups most likely to use their smartphones to find health information | Health | Scoop.it

The 2013 Cybercitizen Health US Study conducted byManhattan Research, a pharmaceutical and healthcare market research firm, helps healthcare marketers understand how patients and caregivers use their smartphones to find health information.

 

The study surveyed 8,600 adults in the US.

 

It estimates that 95 million Americans, up 25% from last year, used their smartphones to find health information. Adoption of mobile solutions varied among patient groups.

 

The study ranked the top ten patient groups that reported using mobile health solutions:

 

Cystic fibrosisGrowth hormone deficiencyAcneADD/ADHDHepatitis CMigraineCrohn’s diseaseChronic kidney diseaseGeneralized anxiety disorderBipolar disorder

 

The prominence of chronic conditions on the list was expected, though the absence of conditions such as diabetes, asthma and sleep disorders was surprising. In its summary of the study, Manhattan Research states that “while adoption of mobile health apps from pharma companies is so far low, they are strongly influential for those users” and also indicate the importance of pharmaceutical websites optimized for mobile viewing.
