According to marketing research conducted by independent research firms and technology companies, smartphone use among physicians is wholly on the rise.

Manhattan Research, a pharmaceutical and healthcare market research firm, conducted a study last year and showed 72% of physicians are using smartphones. Their research also showed this will reach 82% in 2012. Another marketing research company, Spyglass Consulting Group, showed 94% of physicians using some sort of smartphone.

Epocrates, an app maker, released a study last year showing 96% of surveyed medical students are using some sort of smartphone (although this is not explicitly stated in their presentation of the results; they focused more on what kind of smartphone med students are using).

So what is Hype and what is Real?
