Manhattan Research found patients with cystic fibrosis were the online audience segments most likely to be mHealth users, followed by those with growth hormone deficiency and then acne.

2. Growth hormone deficiency patients

3. Acne patients

4. ADD/ADHD patients

5. Hepatitis C patients

6. Migraine patients

7. Crohn's disease patients

8. Chronic kidney disease patients

9. Generalised anxiety disorder patients

The study involved over 8,600 US adults being quizzed online and on the phone in Q3 2013 and the above listing is based on online adults in therapy areas with at least 50 respondents.
