Mobile Technology in Healthcare: Can You Hear Me Now?

iPhone vs. Android
Mobile technology, and specifically the mobile phone, has become the new global platform of computing. This is creating significant sociological changes that will greatly impact the practice of healthcare. The unprecedented computing power available to billions in their coat pockets can be leveraged to improve medical practice and consumer health. However, the explosive growth of this modality also creates the potential for growing pains.

Because healthcare providers have a disproportionately higher rate of smartphone ownership, these devices are now increasingly finding their way into the highly regulated environment of hospitals and clinics. This has the potential to threaten patient privacy and the security of information, which are governed by Federal laws such as HIPAA – and violations already have made headlines with multimillion dollar fines.  Despite this risk, the majority of hospital Information Technology departments don’t even have robust mobile device use policies.
