Improving patient care through technology.

The benefits of smartphones in healthcare.

Looking for ways to deliver faster, more personalized care to patients? Look no further than a smartphone. The adoption of mobile devices in healthcare organizations is at an all-time high, with 90 percent of organizations implementing or planning to implement a mobile device initiative.

And, this is set to increase in the near future. But why?

New global research reveals a direct correlation between hospital mobile device initiatives and patient satisfaction. Ninety-six percent of organizations using smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices see an increase in patient experience scores. Of those, 32 percent say their scores have risen drastically.

With numbers like this, it’s no wonder that nearly half (47 percent) of healthcare organizations plan to increase mobile device usage within the next two years. Where smartphones and other mobile devices are most commonly used:

72%
Nurses stations
63%
Administrative offices
56%
Patient rooms

Other key findings from a survey of 600 global healthcare IT decision makers within both private and public healthcare organizations show:

  • Mobile devices are a primary way healthcare organizations can improve patient care.
  • Mobile device implementation doesn’t come without challenges.
  • Complying with strict data privacy regulations and maintaining a secure network is possible when the right technology pairs with the right mobile device management (MDM) solution.
