One of the more surprising findings in the study was that there was only a 2% difference in patients’ willingness to use free apps based on whether they were suggested by a physician or an insurance company. The lack of meaningful gap is interesting because it implies that there is less of a trust barrier to using apps provided by insurers then previously thought.

Less surprising was the age breakdown of those who would be willing to use an app provided by their physician:
