Infographic: A check-up on consumers' use of mHealth


Deloitte’s 2013 Survey of U.S. Health Care Consumers shows that despite strong interest in mobile health (mHealth), consumer adoption of mobile health technologies remains limited. While 9 in 10 Americans own a cellphone (and over half of them being smartphones) concerns about privacy and security, skepticism about app accuracy and a gap between consumers' wants and the industry's ability to deliver are all limiting factors to mHealth's widespread adoption. But if consumers are comfortable with other mobile-enabled features (such as shopping, travel and banking), why not also in health care?

This infographic incorporates findings from the Deloitte Survey of U.S. Health Care Consumers and what consumers' usage of mHealth technologies looks like today.
