Clinical Mobility: Enhancing Healthcare Practices
Mobile technology has the potential to transform healthcare delivery through remote patient monitoring, telehealth, and analytics. Clinical mobility, a revolutionary approach to delivering healthcare involves the use of mobile devices, computers, and printers by medical professionals at the point of care. Adoption of this new technology allows access to data networks and patient information on mobile devices. Healthcare practitioners can view electronic health records through innovative solutions to save resources. Patients are also embracing the technology according to a global research survey by Zebra Technologies’ 2022 Hospital Vision Study, which states that 77 percent of recently hospitalized patients feel positive about clinicians using mobile devices in their care. Furthermore, 95 percent of the patients are willing to share their health metrics collected from wearables.
The NHS in the UK is initiating trials for monitoring patients’ health and existing conditions using wearables. The data is collected and transferred continuously via Wi-Fi and analyzed by machine learning algorithms before healthcare practitioners are able to view it on their mobile devices. Any signs of deteriorating health can be immediately recognized and treated. Clinical mobility can improve patient interaction with advances in remote patient monitoring and telehealth. With growing population and increasing life expectancy putting pressure on healthcare practices, mobile technology can help save resources and time.
