Pew Research — Mobile Health 2012

According to Pew Research:

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.

The study shows that there is still a long way to go.  Nevertheless, this is what electronic health records and health care reform are all about.  If patients and their healthcare providers can have better access to patient medical information, then patients and providers can improve patient care and keep patients healthier.
