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

;This is changing.   A number of health plans are beginning to pay for remote monitoring devices to help reduce hospital readmission costs.  Some physicians are now getting limited reimbursement for phone consultations, email consults, tele-health and texting.  And nearly half (49%) of consumers surveyed said they would be willing to pay out-of-pocket for electronic consultation with their physicians such as through the Internet, e-mail or text messaging.  

According to PricewaterhouseCoopers, infrastructure in the health system also needs to be addressed.  Hospital IT networks are struggling under the need for more bandwidth to support rapidly expanding data transactions and exchanges with the growth of mobile health and electronic medical records.

Methodology

PricewaterhouseCoopers' Health Research Institute commissioned an online survey in the summer of 2010 of 2,000 consumers and 1,000 physicians regarding their use and preference of mobile technologies in the United States.  In addition, HRI conducted 35 in-depth interviews with thought leaders and executives representing healthcare providers, payers, private sector technology organizations, academic medical centers, telecommunication companies, pharmaceutical and device companies, retail companies, communication firms and employers.
