Some interesting research from the States points to the fact that it is an imperative for healthcare Practices to have a mobile enabled website. Mobile enabled online channels are a hugely important part of your healthcare marketing strategy. If your online channels are not rendered correctly on a mobile device, your prospective viewer will move on.

Based on these trends, Jasson Gilmore, CEO and Co-founder of The Patient’s Guide predicts, “By 2014 the iPhone will surpass the desktop as the primary device for health information.
