Individuals are connecting to the Internet in exploding numbers, especially with mobile devices. Smartphone use grew by 45 percent from 2011 through 2012, and by 44 percent from 2012 through 2013, according to a new report by ABI Research. In addition, an article in Venture Beat citing the report concludes that there will be 1.4 billion smartphones in the world by the end of 2013. This doesn’t even include the number of tablets, laptops, and other devices that people use to connect with the Internet. Health companies have been capitalizing on our increased use of mobile devices by developing apps to make health care more accessible and more efficient. By Jamar Ramos
