Survey seeks physician input on mobile apps

The University of Delaware is collaborating with HIMSS Analytics and mHIMSS to assess provider attitudes toward mobile applications. Physicians, nurses and IT staff can assist in the effort by completing a brief online survey about the use of apps in the healthcare setting.

The survey evaluates a number of key topics emerging in the healthcare space:

  • Opinions on integration of apps into the meaningful use program.
  • Characteristics important to users when downloading an app.
  • Desirable app pricing structures.

The voluntary survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete and all responses will remain confidential. Participants can choose not to answer any question and terminate the survey. The results may be published in a scholarly journal or industry research publication.
