Mobility and the Future Hospital: A Resource Guide

The Challenges Of Mobility in Health Care

Mobile technologies can increase access to vital information and help clinicians better communicate and collaborate. These technologies can also assist in providing a real-time view of clinicians, staff, and assets. When combined with patient flow systems and predictive analytics, this lays the foundations for the next generation hospital.

However, this remains an immature and confusing market, which is made more complicated by security risks and the increasing use of personal devices on hospital networks. IT leaders need to manage expectations carefully, allowing clinicians to use mobile technologies while ensuring that patient data is protected.
