While we were at this year’s HIMSS conference, we spoke to a number of healthcare IT professionals at six leading healthcare providers to get their insights on how advancements in data mobility can engage the entire healthcare ecosystem and help improve patient outcomes.

The digitization of data has empowered both healthcare providers and patients to improve how, when and where healthcare is administered, giving patients greater control over their personal health and well-being. The promise of delivering real-time communication, increased collaboration, and cost efficiencies is already being realized. From electronic health records (EHRs) and picture archive and communications systems (PACS) to remote diagnostics and patient-centered apps, vast amounts of data are being generated, analyzed and used to improve the quality of patient care. But how is that data accessed, managed and shared to help provide more personalized and consistent patient care?

The key to success lies in the ability to get the right information to the right people at the right time. And a crucial enabler of improved communications is the ability to transfer data across like and disparate systems through mobile technology.

This three-part series summarizes the insights the focus group participants shared. In the next installment, we’ll hear how Mobile Technology: Changing the Way Care is Administered. You can also download the complete series as a PDF.
