Ninety-four percent of physicians are using smartphones to communicate, manage personal and business workflows, and access medical information, according to a study released by Spyglass Consulting Group.

The finding represents a 60% increase from the group's 2006 findings, when 59% of physicians were using smartphones.

"Physician smartphone adoption is occurring more rapidly than with members of the general public," said Gregg Malkary, managing director of Spyglass Consulting Group.
