Report: Most Adults Not Using Technology To Track Health
Despite the proliferation of smartphone and tablet applications that monitor health, most U.S. adults who track their health are doing so without using modern technology, according to a report from the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project. Among individuals who reported tracking their health information, only 21% say that they do so using a smartphone application or another form of technology.
