A recent Royal Philips Electronics survey found that consumers believe web-enabled, mHealth and mobile apps are part of their health care solutions and key to living long lives.  While about half of Americans (49 percent) are comfortable with symptom checker technologies or home-based vital sign monitors automatically sharing information with their doctor, more than one third of those surveyed believe technology that allows one to monitor his/her own health is now the key to living a long life.

Philips is developing unique healthcare technology solutions that combine superior clinical expertise with deep human insights.
