New Study Reveals That Physicians Embrace Patient Self-Tracking

NEW YORK, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2013, 70 percent of physicians report that at least one of their patients is sharing health measurement data with them, according to the new Taking the Pulse® U.S. 2013 study from healthcare market research and advisory firm Manhattan Research. However, the methods patients use to share their health measurements with healthcare professionals remain primarily low-tech. The most common forms used by patients are handwriting the data or giving the physician a printout of their information. This year's Taking the Pulse ® U.S. study surveyed 2,950 U.S. practicing physicians online in Q1 2013 across more than 25 specialties.

Moreover, physicians' attitudes toward patients tracking their data are positive. Nearly three-quarters of physicians agree that self-tracking leads to better patient outcomes.

"Self-tracking is already a part of the care paradigm and its prevalence is going to accelerate rapidly as digital connection, payment reform, and outcome-focused delivery make advances," said James Avallone, Director of Physician Research at Manhattan Research. "We are seeing physician attitudes toward self-tracking aligning with policy, which is encouraging for all stakeholders involved."
