Majority track health with apps, but few share with docsLaura PedulliApr 19, 2014

The majority of people use mobile apps on a daily basis to track calorie intake and monitor physical activities, however only 40 percent share such data with their physicians, according to a study from mobile engagement provider Mobiquity.

The company commissioned independent research firm Research Now to survey 1,000 consumers who use, or plan to use, health and fitness mobile apps. The study was conducted in March 2014.

Mobiquity's "Get Mobile, Get Healthy: the Appification of Health & Fitness" study revealed that 34 percent of mobile health and fitness app users said they would increase their use of apps if their doctors actively recommended it. As such, ample opportunity exists for providers to leverage mobile apps to encourage healthier behaviors and improve outcomes, according to the study.

In other findings:

73 percent of people claim to be healthier by using a smartphone and apps to track their health and fitness53 percent discovered they were eating more calories than they realized once they started using health apps63 percent intend to continue, and even increase, their mobile health tracking in the next five years55 percent of mobile health app users plan to introduce wearable devices like pedometers, wristbands and smartwatches to their health monitoring in coming years.69 percent reported that using a smartphone to track their health and fitness is more important to them than using their phone for social networking

How Pharmaceutical Firms Are Using Social Media to Speak to Patients

How Pharmaceutical Firms Are Using Social Media to Speak to Patients | Health, Digital Health, mHealth, Digital Pharma, hcsm latest trends and news (in English) | Scoop.it

Historically, the pharmaceutical industry has been a little slow on the uptake when it comes to the adoption of online marketing. But things are changing. In particular, pharma companies are embracing social media as they seek new, effective ways of helping the people using their products gain valuable information and, in turn, build their brand.

Much of the reason for this is that people have become digitally-savvy, as well as digitally-demanding. Research by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, for example, shows that 80% of internet users in the USA – about 93 million Americans – have searched for a health-related topic online.

There is a wealth of healthcare information available on the web. Whether it is reliable or not is open to debate; nevertheless, the research demonstrates just how important the internet is in the sphere of healthcare.

Into this space steps the pharmaceutical firm. Increasingly, drug manufacturers and healthcare providers are moving social media to the centre stage of their business models as they come to recognise its power in engaging patients.

A new report from the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, one of the most wide-ranging analyses of the social media activities of some of the largest pharmaceutical brands, shows that nearly half of pharmaceutical manufacturers are now actively using social to engage with patients on healthcare-related topics.

Key findings:

Twenty-three of the top 50 pharmaceutical companies worldwide are now actively using social media – on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube – to engage with patientsBut only 10 are using all three services for healthcare-related topicsTwitter is used by 22 of the 50 companies studied, YouTube by 17 companies and Facebook by 15 companiesOf the ten pharmaceutical companies that were active across these three channels, Johnson & Johnson was ranked the bestThe overall level of engagement between pharmaceutical companies and patients has steadily increased over the past yearWikipedia is the single leading source of medical information for patients and healthcare professionals

‘Relevant, accurate content’

“Increasingly, patients are turning to social media as an essential forum for obtaining and sharing information related to their health,” explained Murray Aitken, IMS executive director.

“This trend only heightens the need for relevant, accurate content that can be accessed and used throughout the patient journey. Healthcare professionals, regulators and pharmaceutical manufacturers all need to acknowledge the vital role they can and should play as participants in the healthcare conversation.”

Tips for pharma firms starting out on social mediaStart with strategy

A plan of action is crucial to any social media activity. Start by defining your goals. What do you want to do on social? What do you want to accomplish?

Be human – tell stories

Health is a human issue, so offer stories on social media that engage with people. This could be links to case studies, personal blogs or interviews with experts.

Consider translated content

The most successful pharmaceutical companies are global ones. If you are expanding into new markets, consider offering translated social media content to effectively communicate with your new customers.

Pay attention to regulations

Remember that there are restrictions governing the type of marketing activity pharmaceutical companies can offer. Ensure you are up-to-date with regulations.

Start to review and audit

As your social media activity develops, it is crucial that you measure its success. Start analysing your content – see what works and what doesn’t, and make any necessary changes.
