Mobile devices help clinicians improve the quality of patient care and save lives by improving staff communication and collaboration, and by providing instant access to a wealth of mission-critical information — from real-time lab results to a change in a patient’s condition or verification of the “5 rights” of medication administration at the patient bedside. In addition, mobility also helps healthcare organizations comply with important governmental and regulatory safety standards, without tasking an already overburdened nursing staff with additional paperwork. This white paper provides guidance for planning and implementing a clinical mobility solution in today’s healthcare environment, including a five-step roadmap to help key stakeholders identify needs.
More and more businesses are embracing workplace mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies as a method to reduce costs and stimulate productivity. These initiatives give employees, contractors, and business partners the power to remotely contribute, collaborate, and communicate with team members from familiar devices, anywhere around the world. To implement these strategies effectively however, IT teams must provide access to applications, business systems, collaboration platforms, and development environments without sacrificing end-user experiences, hindering their organization’s security posture, or inducing excessive costs. What many are finding is that traditional methods of desktop and application delivery and on-premises Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) often cannot live up to this task, as they introduce new challenges upon implementation.
