Mobile phone applications (or "apps") and their use in the world of healthcare information is the subject of this recent report from the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project. Authored by associate director Susannah Fox, this 15-page report was released in October 2010, and it looks at how different cell phone users use their phones to look up health or medical information. The report was based on interviews conducted between August 9th and September 13th, 2010 with 1000 participants. Visitors who read the report will learn that 17% of all cell owners have used their phone to look up health or related medical information, and that 9% of cell owners have "apps" that help them track or manage their health. Additionally, the report contains detailed tables and graphs, along with demographic details that are helpful for those who require a more detailed portrait.
