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?
