Mobility in Healthcare Can Save Your Life

— October 02, 2012

Successful mobility in healthcare not only powers the business, but enhances the provider/patient relationship and improves care. And, with both patients and providers utilizing the same systems to access critical data and communicate from anywhere in this highly regulated industry, security is a top concern.

In just one example, the USFDA report (“Bar Code Label Requirements for Human Drug Products and Biological Products: Final Rule”), claimed that hospitals could eliminate 50% of their medication administration errors by scanning bar codes at the point of care to positively identify patients, the medication they are about to receive and match the information to a physician order.

Positive patient ID is so obviously the basis for effective healthcare, it should go without saying, but in a chaotic hospital setting mix-ups occur. From admission, to diagnosis, to treatment, to discharge and post-treatment check-up, there are a lot of steps and a lot of people involved.

There's much to consider when it comes to healthcare mobility and this paper explores why a full mobile strategy is necessary to avoid both financial risk and enterprise liability.
