Mobile Health 2012 – by Susannah Fox, Maeve Duggan, November 8, 2012

  • “Fully 85% of U.S. adults own a cell phone. Of those, 53% own smartphones. One in three cell phone owners (31%) have used their phone to look for health information. In a comparable, national survey conducted two years ago, 17% of cell phone owners had used their phones to look for health advice. Smartphone owners lead this activity: 52% gather health information on their phones, compared with 6% of non-smartphone owners. Cell phone owners who are Latino, African American, between the ages of 18-49, or hold a college degree are also more likely to gather health information this way.”
