Detailed Description:

Smartphones are more and more present and change many aspects of people's life, especially in the field of health. The appearance of numerous mobile health applications over the past years explains this strong attractiveness.

According to some studies, these could lead to savings in health care systems by promoting a preventive approach and refocusing cares on the patient who would be more independent. However, not much data on the use of smartphone health applications by patients are reported in the scientific literature.

The main objective of this study is to evaluate the frequency of use of smartphone mobile health applications among primary care patients aged 18 to 69 in the Grenoble region, France.

The secondary objectives are the collection of the kind of application used, the rhythm of usage of these health applications and the comparison of the frequency of use with the sociodemographic, geographical and medical characteristics of the studied population.

To this end, the investigators use a questionnaire distributed by voluntary general practitioners and filled by patients. The number of subjects to be included is 385 and the number of distributed questionnaires is 1500.
