This study is a nationwide survey on self-tracking behaviors and the use of mobile health apps and smart connected devices. With a representative sample of 4,109 Canadian adults, this is the only national market survey in this area and represents one of the largest surveys on the use of consumer digital health technologies in the global landscape. The study, which was commissioned by Canada Health Infoway, was conducted by a research team based at HEC Montreal and CEFRIO. Data were collected via The Nielsen Company's web panel in early 2017. Results show an opportunity to advance the health of Canadians through mobile apps and smart devices; and highlight important nuances to better understand key market segments.
