Healthcare Mobility: Changing the Face of Patient Care

Healthcare Mobility: Changing the Face of Patient Care | IT & Mental Health | Scoop.it

Numbers tell the story. A study jointly commissioned by Telenor and Boston Consulting Group titled “Socio-Economic Impact of mHealth,” reveals two interesting points:

 

One, 30% of smartphone users is expected to use “wellness apps” by 2015 and secondly smartphone is the most popular device among doctors since the stethoscope.

 

There are many such studies done by various groups with each underpinning the larger role played by mobile technology in patient care and healthcare administration.

 

Healthcare Mobility is Getting Pervasive

 

Healthcare mobile solutions have evolved a lot in the recent years.  From self-help apps on fitness & wellness in the beginning, we now have serious and real medical solutions that are playing impactful roles in diagnosis, emergency care, treatment and are improving outcomes.

 

Today healthcare organizations are making great use of smartphones, scanners, radars, two-way radios and other wireless solutions at every stage in healthcare:

 

Patient care: Mobile apps and devices are enabling patient monitoring, medication administration, specimen collection & testing and transfusion verification etc.

 

Community care: Mobile solutions are being used to collect and share data from the field to monitor and manage infectious diseases.

 

Emergency care: Patients are always connected with emergency care teams through mobile apps and can call for help from anywhere and anytime. The care team can then co-ordinate, as they take patient to hospital, with the staff to provide quickest possible aid to patients.

 

Clinical collaboration: Physicians and nurses can consult and share critical information at the time of need.

 

Workforce management: Hospitals and other healthcare organizations are using mobile solutions for workforce scheduling, mobile dispatches and time logging etc.

 

Hospital administration: Healthcare mobility is being used in areas like patient admission/discharge process, billing, insurance claim processing, asset and facility management etc.
