Smartphones have revolutionized access to instant information. When it comes to health care, consumers are increasingly using mobile and online sources to conduct their own medical research, according to a Pew Research Report. Studies show that more than half of U.S. adults want mobile access to more comprehensive information about medical providers, as well as the ability to schedule appointments directly from their phones.
