Consumer interest in mobile health

Consumer interest in mobile health (mHealth) is strong and its potential to improve health care is high. Despite this interest, however, Deloitte’s 2013 Survey of US Health Care Consumers shows that consumer adoption of mobile health technologies remains limited. And yet, the tools for mHealth are already in consumers’ hands – nine in 10 Americans own a cell phone; over half of these are smart phones.1 One in three uses their phone to look for health information.2 Consumers are comfortable with mobile-enabled shopping, travel and banking so, why not health care? Privacy and security concerns, skepticism about the accuracy of apps and a gap in what some consumers say they want and the health care industry’s current capabilities are limiting factors.
