Mobility in Healthcare & Public Service
Mobile technologies in healthcare – especially in clinical care operations – can be an innovative way to improve patient care, reduce complexity, improve efficiency, and empower healthcare decision makers with actionable insight at the point of care.
The healthcare industry continues to face intense challenges, including rising costs, declining profitability, and widespread inefficiency. A fast changing regulatory environment and pressure to improve the quality of care, patient safety, and access to information are driving a wide array of changes in the industry. New technologies are the catalyst for many positive changes. They also offer new opportunities to improve the quality and control the cost of healthcare.
