Healthcare is not a desk job. It is inherently mobile, and healthcare providers have the opportunity to fundamentally improve patient care by adopting Mobile First initiatives to make their most important operational processes available as mobile apps.
The Mobile First priorities for our healthcare customers include support for the secure distribution and management of healthcare applications and the ability to allow multiple medical professionals to use the same device but only allow them access to the information for which they are authorized.
Additional priorities include allowing for successful BYOD initiatives which mean ensuring both data protection and privacy requirements are met, including HIPAA compliance, and enabling the replacement of Computers on Wheels (COWs) with tablets. iPads, especially, are driving tremendous innovation in the healthcare arena because computing and data are now easily accessible at every point of patient care.
