Infographic: Doctors Prescribing More Mobile Health Apps   mobile health mHealth eClinicalWorks apps According to the most recent industry data available, doctors are beginning to encourage patients to use mobile health apps in numbers that would have been unimaginable just a short time ago.

eClinicalWorks just conducted an online survey of healthcare professionals in order to assess healthcare providers’ interest in mobile health apps.

The results were compelling.

“In order to transform healthcare, patients need to be engaged,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “People are invested in and want to be engaged in their health as long as they trust the source of the information.”

eClinicalWorks highlighted some of the findings of their research in a new infographic, which is shared below.
