One key finding for health care professionals: 81 percent believe mobile health apps can increase their knowledge of patient conditions. Beyond that, 48 percent plan to introduce mobile apps to their practice within the next five years.

Roughly 93 percent of health app users reported that using them improves their quality of life. However, just 32 percent of health professionals agree with them.

Just over half of the health professionals surveyed believe the NHS should invest more money in health monitoring smartphone technology. For the app users themselves, 78 percent would like to see greater investment.

"Right now, only 10 percent of health care professionals are using mobile health apps and only 29 percent of health app users use them to monitor their health conditions," said Simon Beedell, division director, EMEA Healthcare at Research Now, in a statement. "But there is tremendous opportunity for these to transform medical care.

Beedell cites patients with heart conditions, diabetics, and the elderly as prime examples of populations who can take significant benefits from mobile technology.
