New Year’s Resolutions: Healthcare High Tech
In the original “Miracle on 34th Street,” made in 1947, Santa Claus brings the doctor the latest model in x-ray machines. In 2012, the ECRI Institute, an independent nonprofit that researches the best approaches to improving patient care, has listed 10 health technology issues that hospital leaders should have on their wish lists. Ultrahigh-field-strength MRI systems make the list, but so do electronic health records. In fact, electronic health records and the data security around them score high on several lists for 2012.
Gartner Research’s recent report, “Top Industry Predicts 2012: Industries Face intensified Consumerization and Technology Disruption,” lists several health care IT predictions for the coming years. One being that by 2013, iPad penetration among pharma sales reps will reach 85%. In healthcare settings, mobile devices allow physicians and others to manage clinical, financial and administrative information at the point of care. Smartphones, iPads and other tablets are now commonly used in clinical settings.
So how do you manage the data security and patient privacy required with electronic health records when they are being access from mobile devices all over the hospital and even outside medical buildings? We talked about security for mobile devices on our webinar, Secure your mobile channel without affecting usability.
