Mobile Technologies in Healthcare
Mobile technologies are fundamental to extend care beyond traditional settings for accessible and sustainable healthcare.
Mobile tablets, smart phones, medical devices, healthcare mobile apps and monitors are collecting, storing and sharing patient data, at exponential rates. The benefits are clear, easier and quicker access to data that will support better patient care and better informed patient decisions. Mobile technologies are fundamental to support and enable new models of care required for sustainable healthcare.
However, there are challenges; with the large majority of healthcare IT systems and clinical processes designed for a different era, going mobile needs careful planning.
A big challenge for mobile healthcare is to develop an effective enterprise mobility strategy that further enables and enhances existing systems for mobile access, and doing so in a way that combines security with ease-of-use and improved outcomes.
The latest HIMSS Analytics Mobile Survey revealed mobile devices are already widely in use in healthcare through BYOD demands or supplied by organizations. This amplifies the need for healthcare organizations to take a holistic approach to ensure all devices and usage follow consistent protocols, meet security standards and deliver the expected value to all stakeholders.
Healthcare Mobility Solutions:
For mobile technology to be effective it needs to open up and aggregate relevant data from multiple sources, present that real-time data in a format suitable for the user to consume in a meaningful way. Leveraging mobile technologies will allow care providers to better deliver integrated care, bringing together logistical and clinical information to assist with fast, accurate decisions and improve the patient experience throughout episodes of care.
This digital transformation with mobile access to healthcare information will enable improved workflows and new models of care outside traditional care settings to meet the growing demands of modern and sustainable healthcare.
To give clinicians what they want, the CSC Mobility Suite leverages existing Patient Administration Systems (PAS), laboratory, radiology, PACS imaging, and bedside monitoring systems to deliver a mobile Electronic Medical Record (EMR).
