Medical Mobility: Critical Considerations for Healthcare Mobility Strategy
Mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets have become an important part of healthcare technology. Many hospitals have allowed employees to bring their own devices to work. This poses numerous issues including device management, compatibility, security and privacy. Because of these issues, many healthcare facilities are migrating away from BYOD (bring your own device) policies to more controlled mobility strategies.
Healthcare IT strategists must balance the benefits of mobile devices with numerous issues including, mobile device tracking, mobile device management, security, charging, syncing and cross contamination infection control issues.
Infection control is a particularly important consideration, since mobile devices are known to be a primary cross contamination point for hospital acquired infections. Infact, a study performed by Dr. Charles Gerba at the University of Arizona, found that mobile phones are the single dirtiest personal item that we contact on a regular basis.
