What 4K Americans think about digital health

We’ve always believed delivering value to consumers should be the driving force in healthcare innovation. To get a pulse check on how well digital health solutions are serving them, we surveyed 4K Americans, now giving us three-year longitudinal data.

In our just-released annual Digital Health Consumer Adoption report, we dive into the latest trends in consumer adoption, sentiment on trust and privacy, and behavior by demographic subgroups. We hope this serves as a guide in your work to create even more value in digital health—especially for those who need it most.
