Source: MaaS360 by Fiberlink, an IBM company

This white paper from MaaS360 by Fiberlink discusses the rapid growth in the number of mobile devices in healthcare facilities, the diversity of the mobile platforms, the different operating systems, and the varying communication methods found on these devices. In remarks made at George Washington University Hospital in Washington D.C., FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said that healthcare is being “transformed” by broadband, and called out wireless and mobile in particular.

For its part in this transformation, Genachowski said, “The FCC is pursuing a health strategy with three key components: promoting connectivity; fostering fast-paced innovation of wireless networks, medical devices and mobile apps; encouraging greater adoption of life-saving health technology; and ensuring that spectrum is optimally allocated and managed.”

On the outside the FCC is pushing for mobility in the healthcare industry by focusing efforts on infrastructure improvements and promoting innovation. Within the healthcare industry, a recent poll of managed Healthcare providers by the Aberdeen Group found three expectations for mobile healthcare technology: stem the rising costs of healthcare processes, improve staff productivity, and decrease the entry erroneous data.
