Harris Poll on Mobile Health Care

By October 27, 2009November 4th, 2009Commentary

The Harris organization conducted a poll in conjunction with CTIA looking at views of mobile healthcare.  (Form to request Poll results presentation) Key questions asked of consumers and physicians included familiarity with mobile technology, level of interest in use, and perception of value.  A substantial minority of patients and a majority of physicians were familiar with mobile healthcare concepts, but not at any level of specificity.  As would be expected, patients with higher levels of activation are more interested in mobile health.  Chronically ill patients, who likely would benefit most, tend to have lower activation scores.  Both patients and physicians see more home-based care as the top value for mobile health.
