  • Making Medical Workers Mobile (And The Patients It Serves)

    The healthcare industry has undergone immense change over the last decade. From the introduction of healthcare analytics to the widespread implementation of electronic medical records (EMR)/electronic health records (EHR) across the U.S. to even the replacement of legacy phone systems with unified communications technology, the systems that make up today’s healthcare organizations function and look quite differently than 10 or 20 years ago. The common thread among all of this change is technology and the widespread adoption of the “anywhere, anytime” mindset for communication.

  • Mobile Technologies Play A Key Role In Reducing Physician And Administrative Burdens

    In most ambulatory practices, care is delivered in a tightly-timed environment, with the performance of each team member dependent on a workflow that must move efficiently. With new mandates and evolving technology, the physician’s role is now more complex than ever.

  • How Mobile Devices Contribute To OR Delays And Cancellations

    Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have changed the way people work and live by providing instant, anytime, anywhere access to information. Given the highly mobile life of a surgeon, smartphones have become a lifeline for case-related communication. Regardless of whether a surgeon is outside of a hospital environment or within different hospital settings (i.e. pre-op, recovery, intensive care, etc.) they need a way to stay connected when access to a traditional computer is not possible.

  • Software Quality And Device Recalls

    The definition of medical device has expanded quite a bit in the past decade. Not only do wheelchairs, imaging equipment and pacemakers qualify as medical devices, but so do health monitoring apps and digital health trackers. Thanks to the advancements of the digital age, “hospital at home” is the trend. The industry is moving towards a connected care environment where devices that capture data, applications that derive insights from that data and apps that deliver personalized suggestions have become the critical driving factors. Nevertheless, the industry is also fueled by globalization, competition and demand for more advanced treatments. Sensors are at the heart of every device, from small bandages to implants.

MOBILE COMPUTING

Mobile devices can save time, reduce errors, and real time data access at the point-of-care. With mobile computers, healthcare providers have access to patient information on-demand and at any location in the facility. In general, these point-of-care computing solutions include tablets, laptops, smartphones, mobile carts, handheld scanners, and RFID readers. All of these mobile devices are essential to the larger category of mHealth solutions.

Mobile devices like tablets and laptops offer providers easy access to EHR/EMR systems, allowing doctors to diagnose patients quickly and have patient information available to them immediately. Handheld scanners, barcode scanners, barcoded wrist bands, RFID tags, and other identification applications allow for quick and easy identification of patients and medications. These technologies ensure proper medication dispensing and also provide patient security and safety.

Many of these mobile devices are housed in mobile carts, allowing for quick and easy access to tools, additional battery power for all devices, and enhanced mobility. All of these mobile computing technologies allow healthcare providers to access and record patient data in real time at the point-of-care, ensuring the highest quality healthcare possible.
