    HIPAA! HITECH! HELP!— Mobile Device Management (MDM) in Healthcare

    in Technology

    The number of mobile devices in healthcare facilities is increasing rapidly, as is the diversity of mobile platforms, operating systems (OSes) and communication methods that need to be supported by these organizations. In fact, in remarks made at George Washington University Hospital in Washington D.C., FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said that healthcare is being “transformed” by broadband, and called out wireless and mobile in particular.


    For its part in this transformation, Genachowski said,


    The FCC is pursuing a health strategy with three key components: promoting connectivity; fostering fast-paced innovation of wireless networks, medical devices and mobile apps; encouraging greater adoption of life-saving health technology; and ensuring that spectrum is optimally allocated and managed.”


    So on the outside, infrastructure and promotion is progressing, but what does mobility in healthcare look like from the inside?


    A recent poll of managed Healthcare providers by the Aberdeen Group found three clear expectations for mobile healthcare technology: stem the rising costs of healthcare processes, improve staff productivity, and decrease the entry erroneous data.


    To understand where mobility is headed though, it would first help to remember the mistakes of the past.
