Mobilising the Clinician 2006

One thing is for sure…the use of mobile technology in Healthcare IT is growing at a phenomenal rate. There are many estimates as to how fast mobile technology solutions are developing at present. Juniper Research stated in May 2006 that spending on mobile health care in North America and Europe will reach $2.7bn by 2010. Furthermore the rise in wireless investment in healthcare services is by no means restricted to patient management. Juniper forecasts an increase in use of wireless technology and applications across the board, from prescribing to EPR.

Everybody recognises that new advances in ICT and mobile/wireless technology will drive national Healthcare ICT spending and push the UK’s Connecting for Health Programme beyond its current implementation phases. It is becoming ever important to devote resources to better devices, training and strategic planning.
