Article

Ninety-four percent of physicians are using smartphones to communicate, manage personal and business workflows, and access medical information, according to a study released by Spyglass Consulting Group.

Ninety-four percent of physicians are using smartphones to communicate, manage personal and business workflows, and access medical information, according to a study released by Spyglass Consulting Group. The finding represents a 60 percent increase from the group's 2006 findings, when 59 percent of physicians were using smartphones.

"Physician smartphone adoption is occurring more rapidly than with members of the general public," says Gregg Malkary, managing director of Spyglass Consulting Group.

Other findings of the study:

Seventy-eight percent of physicians said they were experiencing difficulties accessing and communicating with colleagues in a timely manner.

Fifty-six percent of physicians expressed concern about lack of standardized processes for transitioning care between colleagues.
