Survey Reveals Physicians Like Mobile Computing and Accessing Clinical Laboratory Tests Is One Important Use
QuantiaMD’s survey confirms that physicians will increasingly seek real-time connectivity and consultation with medical laboratory service providers
Physicians are quickly becoming fans of mobile computing. Clinical laboratory managers and pathologists will be interested to learn that, in fact, mobile computing is taking hold among physicians faster than in the general population.
This was one conclusion from a recent survey, according to an article in Healthcare Informatics. QuantiaMD, a Waltham, MA-based mobile and online physician community, conducted a survey of 3,798 physicians. More than 80 % of the respondents said they own a mobile device capable of downloading applications. That means that a far higher percentage of physicians are using mobile devices than among the general public.
