Three in Ten Americans Would Use Their Cell Phone to Track Personal Health, Finds PricewaterhouseCoopers
Date:9/8/2010

  • The top challenge physicians said they face in their practice is accessing information where and when it is needed.  One-third of physicians surveyed said they currently make decisions based on incomplete information for seven out of ten patients they see.  Only half of physicians surveyed currently access electronic medical records while visiting and treating their patients, a situation that will improve with meaningful use requirements for physicians to use interoperable electronic medical records.  Physicians agreed that the greatest benefit of mobile health would be to help them make decisions faster by accessing more accurate data in real time.  
  • The second biggest challenge for physicians is they don't have time to interact with patients as much as they would like. Forty-five percent of physicians said that Internet visits would expand access to patients.
  • Forty percent of physicians said they could reduce the number of office visits by 11 to 30 percent by using mobile health technologies like remote monitoring, email or text messaging with patients.  Such shifts could address the shortage of physicians, reduce hospital readmission costs and increase access for patients who delay care because they don't want to wait for an appointment.

  • One of the barriers to more rapid adoption of mobile health may be that in-person consultation is still the main basis of reimbursement in healthcare.  Public payers and private health insurers, who are primarily responsible for paying for healthcare, have generally not pushed for adoption of mobile health, says PricewaterhouseCoopers.  Nor has the healthcare industry figured out a way to pay for electronic transactions in the way other industries have, such as for music and video downloads.
