Amidst the 2013 HIMSS conference in New Orleans this year, the rise of mobility in healthcare is getting a lot of attention. At last year’s conference it seemed to be in a dozen events or so but this year mHealth seems to be just about everywhere.
Appearing in and out of exhibit halls, sessions, panel discussions and keynotes, no one can now ignore how much mobile healthcare has risen in the past year.
Eric Wicklund from mHIMMS reports “Mobility in healthcare isn’t a new concept any more, and it’s a significant stepping stone to the future of healthcare delivery. It can and will enable the healthcare provider to push away from the limited confines of the examination room and develop a practice with more potential, not to mention better outcomes.”
