Smartphone Owners Five Times More Likely to Use Patient Portals

Smartphone users are significantly more likely to be patient portal users than consumers that do not own internet-connected mobile devices, says a new report by Parks Associates. Twenty-seven percent of smartphone owners regularly engage with patient portals compared to just five percent of non-owners.

"Monthly usage of patient portals is increasing among US broadband households, but 50 percent of US broadband households do not regularly use these online health resources and 23 percent do not use health portals at all," said Harry Wang, Director of Health and Mobile Product Research at Parks Associates.
