Cleveland Clinic President: “Thanks to smart phones and other mobile devices, healthcare can happen right now, wherever you are”



Toby Cosgrove

Healthcare doesn’t have to wait until your next doctor’s appointment. It doesn’t have to be confined to a hospital, clinic or doctor’s office. Thanks to smart phones and other mobile devices, healthcare can happen right now, wherever you are.

Nearly 70 percent of Americans have smart phones, giving them access to an exploding network of healthcare apps and programs that is shrinking our dependence on bricks-and-mortar offices. Clearly, mobile devices will not replace doctors, nurses, hospitals or clinics; rather, they will add to the caregiver-patient relationship by providing real-time updates and relevant information. These apps make it easy for millions of people to search for health information, check symptoms, and connect caregivers, patients and their medical records.

What does this mean for the future of healthcare? Lower costs, improved wellness, and better outcomes
