Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the association between factors such as having “Apps” that help track or manage health, health status, hospitalization and changes in physical health and quality of life. Secondary data analysis was conducted using raw data from the PEW Internet Health Tracking Survey 2012. The sample in this research (N=2,226) consisted of adult internet users who responded to the question of having any software applications or “apps” that help track or manage their health. Descriptive statistics was conducted to examine the demographics such as sex, age, income, marital status, parental status, employment, ethnicity, educational status, and race. A multinomial logit model was conducted in order to determine the association between the dependent variable of “quality of life” and independent variables of having an “apps” to manage their health.
