NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Benchmarking Consumer Attitudes on Health and Wellness Along the Road to Patient Engagement

This is an assessment of consumers' perceptions of their current health status, their engagement in health and health-related activities, and their use of mobile and wearable devices and health tracking applications. It is based on a Web-based survey of 1,500 adults, 18 years and older, who have health insurance coverage. Consumer segments were derived, with each segment having distinct attitudes, health behavior, and technology adoption patterns.

Summary of Key Findings

Overall, the most prevalent health conditions are hypertension ( %), depression/anxiety ( %), arthritis ( %), and diabetes ( %).

- Men have higher rates of hypertension ( % vs. %) while women report more depression/anxiety ( % vs. %). Interestingly, diabetes rates are more prevalent among men at % compared to just % among women.
Given the current interest in vitamins, it is no surprise that taking vitamins or supplements is the top health activity reported, followed by prescription medicines. Surprisingly, the use of non-prescription medicines is higher among men, along with the use of health-monitoring equipment.

Higher household income level is correlated with greater confidence in access to health services such as the right medical team, care in a timely fashion, and the ability to afford medical care.

- Across each of the health service capabilities, older consumers (aged 56 or older) are more confident in being able to access health services than younger consumers.
