This week, we want to share some information about why your hospital needs a strong mobile presence. (You can learn more about mobile options for your hospital in this blog post.)

People use their mobile devices all the time

A recent Gallup poll shows just how connected people are to their smartphones. Most Americans have their smartphone by them all day. Many have it by them all night. A stat that stood out to us: 1 in 5 Americans ages 18 to 29 say they check their phone "every few minutes." 

Searching for health information is a common smartphone task

Smartphone use is on the rise. As of April, 64 percent of Americans owned a smartphone. Among smartphone owners, 62 percent said they had used their phone to look up information about a health condition in the last year.
