Today’s world is one in which everyone wants information fast and at their fingertips. Healthcare is no different. Technology in healthcare has been rapidly evolving and healthcare mobile apps can supply people with information, fast and easy.
According to PwC’s Health Research Institute’s Annual Report, mobile health app adoption has doubled, increasing from 16% to 32%. Most of those surveyed by PwC have at least one medical, health or fitness app on their mobile device.
The key to getting your patients to use your mobile app is creating an app that answers patient’s questions and needs. For example, many patients want an app that can give them access to medical records, the ability to request appointments and have access to prescription information.
Certainly, as we provide patients with this new way to connect with us, we have to be sure that HIPPA information remains protected. Studies show 38% of patients are wary of using a hospital-associated hacked device and we must be mindful of regulations.
