Survey: 94% Of Doctors Use Smartphones

More than double the rate of the general public. Lots of iPhysicians: 44 percent on the iPhone.

Spyglass Consulting Group reports:

Ninety-four percent of physicians interviewed were using smartphones to
communicate, manage personal/business workflows, and access
information including medical reference materials.  Physician
smartphone adoption is occurring more rapidly than with the general
public which is evidenced by a recent AT&T announcement reporting 42
percent of their subscribers were using smartphones.  Forty-four percent
of physicians interviewed using smartphones had adopted the Apple
iPhone followed by 25 percent who had adopted the RIM Blackberry.
