Did you know that 95 million Americans use mobile devices as health tools? Did you know that 40,000 medical apps are available for tablets and smartphones? Did you know that 42 percent of U.S. hospitals use digital health technology?

Now you do. Check out Mobile Future’s new infographic, “Mobile Health – Just What the Doctor Ordered,” to get a fuller picture of just how mobile tools are transforming healthcare.

“The explosion in consumer demand for mobile health technologies is a testament to the transformative nature of our digital revolution,” says Mobile Future Chair Jonathan Spalter. “Mobile health is projected to be a $20 billion industry by 2018, and there’s clearly a lot of interest and opportunity in this space.”

The infographic captures how the virtuous cycle of wireless innovation is profoundly reshaping healthcare outcomes and upending the way Americans are interacting with the health care system. And the impacts of groundbreaking mobile innovations extend to our nation’s economy – mobile technologies have the potential to save the U.S. $36 billion by 2018.

Mobile Future sees wireless technology disrupting virtually every industry imaginable. So swing by the Mobile Future lunch, meet up with fellow mobile enthusiasts, and learn more about what’s happening in the wireless space.
