Your Health- The digital version

Posted by barbarahales

As a physician or healthcare provider, do you contribute your information to a digital format?

Individuals that participate in consumer-driven health plans have a higher tendency to use a tablet or smartphone for health-seeking purposes according to a study by the Employee Benefit Research Institute.

Results, based on 4,498 privately insured adults conducted in December, discovered that 60% of them utilized a digital device within the year, 60% with the smartphone and 40% with the tablet.

Among the goals of digital use include:
App for nutrition (27-32%)
Answers to general health questions (25-29%)
Diets and weight control (23-27%)
Exercise programs (23-26%)

Interestingly enough, as much as 25% of Americans trust mHealth apps as much as their doctors (according to FierceMobileHealthcare)

The digital and technology age is here to stay. This is a great way to promote yourself, stand out from the crowd and extend your aura of authority.

What is it that you do along these lines now?
