The explosive adoption of mobile devices in the last decade has created new expectations around information access. Front-line healthcare providers and patients alike are increasingly using mobile technology and continue to drive demand for their healthcare organizations to provide mHealth options.
There is a great deal of potential for positive transformation that is enabled by mHealth. A successful deployment of mHealth requires organizations to assess their readiness to adopt mHealth in a structured way. A healthcare organization can plot a course to put the right mobile technologies and apps in the hands of its providers and patients to ultimately improve the experience and overall outcomes in care.
