Health Consumers’ Use of Apps Is Up, Accenture Finds

Posted by @DanHinmon, Mar 9, 2016

Are you creating health apps for your patients?

One in 3 consumers is using mobile apps for health, doubling from 16% in 2014 to 33% in 2016, according to a survey from Accenture. Part of this response is due to more physicians asking their patients to adopt a wearable to track a health or fitness metric.

A survey from HealthMine found that nearly one-third of all heart patients used some digital health tool: 50% an activity tracker, 48% a blood pressure app, 47% a heart rate app, and 38%, a nutrition app.
