Eighty-one percent of surveyed U.S. physicians say they have adopted smart phones, according to a new Manhattan Research survey.
In 2010, 72% of physicians had adopted smart phones, according to James Avallone, a senior digital health care analyst at Manhattan Research.
The survey also found that 75% of surveyed physicians have purchased an Apple mobile device and that 30% of doctors use the Apple iPad to access electronic health records, view radiology images and communicate with patients.
In addition, the survey found that an additional 28% of physicians plan to purchase an iPad in the next six months.
