What other emerging trends do you see in the area of healthcare IT, apart from mobility?
Key trends to look out for include:
- Tablets, mobile computers and other consumer class mobile devices are gaining acceptance in healthcare. Clinicians and patients are bringing their personal devices in to the corporate network and expecting IT managers to support them.
- Healthcare organisations are also looking for new ways of mobilising their workforce and streamlining their processes to achieve higher levels of efficiency. Solutions such as Mobile Workforce Management (MWM) offered by Motorola Solutions which enable this in real-time will witness increasing uptake in the coming days.
- The increasing uptake of technology and especially of mobile devices on the network is making the management of them a complex challenge. Healthcare organisations are looking for solutions that enable centralised management and control of the large number of wireless devices on their network
- Healthcare organisations are looking at outsourcing their IT needs such as mobile device management services, wireless infrastructure or cloud services to external specialist vendors. This will free them up to refocus on their core competency of providing patient care.
