Utilisation des applications de santé sur smartphone chez les 18-69 ans consultant en soins premiers dans le bassin grenoblois : une étude épidémiologique transversale

Abstract : Introduction: Smartphone health applications have proved their interest for changing health behaviors. Their use is yet faintly documented in France. The main objective was then to evaluate the frequency of use of health apps among patients consulting in primary care. The secondary objectives were to evaluate the use of health applications according to the sociodemographic and medical characteristics of patients and to determine their use. Methods: Population-based crossed-sectional survey carried out between November 2017 and January 2018 in Grenoble area, France, among patients aged between 18 and 69 consulting in 13 primary care centers with anonymous paper self-questionnaires. The main criterion was the use of a smartphone health application. Results: The participation rate was 49.3% with 597 filled questionnaires. 47.6% (CI=[43.6-51.6]) of the sample used at least one smartphone health application. Used health apps were mainly related to well-being, prevention and fitness (66.1%), and to drugs, treatment and follow-up care (50.0%). The association factors with the use of health apps were: the use of social networks (OR=3.36), the fact to be a woman (OR=1.77), an age under 30 (OR=2.68), the size of cities (OR=1.81 between 5,001 and 10,000 inhabitants and OR=2.10 for more than 10,000), and the fact to occupy an executive position, an intellectual profession or and intermediate occupation (OR=1.71). Conclusion: The use of smartphone health applications was about one in two patients and is currently mainly limited to well-being, prevention and fitness in a young population. These tools would become more interesting by reaching a broader population.
