Despite the increasing availability of mobile health services, clinical engagement remains minimal. This study from Leigh et al. aimed to identify and weight barriers to and drivers of health app use among health care professions (HCPs) from the UK. They found an NHS stamp of approval, published studies, and recommendations from fellow HCPs are significant facilitators of digital prescribing, whereas increasing costs and patient age are significant barriers to engagement. These findings suggest that demonstrating assurances of health apps and supporting both the dissemination and peer-to-peer recommendation of evidence-based technologies are critical if the NHS is to achieve its long-term digital transformation ambitions.
