  • Mobile in healthcare a strong prescription for improved patient care

    Walk the corridors of any modern hospital, from intensive care to patient units to emergency rooms, and you'll see the familiar banks of workstations where doctors and nurses busily access patient records and type in critical updates. For years, those stationary desktops have been the lifeblood of patient care. And while laptops have given caregivers some degree of mobility, "nobody wants to carry around a 4.5-pound laptop all day," one hospital CIO says. Doctors and nurses looking for mobile in healthcare to engage patients inside and outside the hospital may find a cure in small tablets, and they don't require a prescription.
