Working With Self-Diagnosing Patients

A recent survey on behalf of the Astellas Innovation Debate determined that 75% of medical practitioners had noted a 'marked increase' in the number of self-diagnosing patients during the last twelve months. Many of these, 21%, presented at their doctor's office armed with supporting data from a growing range of health apps and smart devices. Some even carried folders full of graphs and printouts to support their arguments. Some saw that as helping their doctors. Others saw it as a declaration of war, with their doctor on the opposing side. The numbers of self-diagnostic patients are likely to increase as the number of available devices grow, and the various supporting platforms all see corresponding growth in the numbers of healthcare apps in their respective stores.

This issue will also continue to grow.
