A recent survey from FICO has found four of five smartphone users are interested in mobile healthcare interactions. An announcement of the study’s results reveals 76 percent of respondents would be interested in reminders of their appointments and 69 percent would also like to receive alerts when it is time for them to schedule appointments or take their medications.
"The way healthcare organizations communicate with people is changing, as individuals become more and more sophisticated about using information technology to make health-related decisions," said Stuart Wells, FICO's chief product and technology officer. "People are especially interested in mobile services that can help them manage their personal health and shop for health care services. The leading health care providers are increasingly turning to mobile technologies to meet this demand, and to engage frequently and proactively with consumers."
