Report: Smartphone Use among U.S. Physicians Accelerating

Report: Smartphone Use among U.S. Physicians Accelerating : "Smartphones are rapidly emerging as the “black bag” of the new millennium, according to a new report issued by The Diffusion Group. The percentage of active physicians using Internet-enabled smartphones is expected to increase from 49% in 2006 to 70% in 2011, a net growth of 51% during the forecast period. According to Alex Kasten, consulting analyst with TDG and report author, the growth of smartphone use among physicians is strongly correlated with the emergence of compelling applications, solutions often defined and developed by physicians themselves. “There is no doubt the mobile eHealth market is application-driven,” notes Kasten. “While a specific segment of doctors can be characterized as early adopters, most physicians are incredibly pragmatic about incorporating new technologies into their professional lives,” said Kasten.
