Physicians and patients have something in common. Both have a voracious appetite for mHealth applications.
According to a new survey spearheaded by EHR vendor eClinicalWorks, 9 in 10 physicians support mobile health apps, particularly the variety tied to electronic health records (EHRs).
The same survey found that 93 percent of physician respondents believe that mobile health apps can improve a patient’s health outcome, and 89 percent are likely to recommend a mobile health app to a patient.
A corresponding infographic shows the emerging popularity of mHealth apps and their hastened adoption by doctors, patients, and a wide variety of healthcare industry professionals.
