How to Develop a Mobility Strategy for Healthcare

Keri Boyer

There has never been a more exciting time for the healthcare marketplace. With digital transformation revolutionizing healthcare patients and providers alike are able to expect a better experience in every aspect of managed care.

The IoT (internet of things) alone will change patient care dramatically. With a compound growth rate of 30% per year through 2022, the technology is spreading faster than many providers can keep up.

Integrating a mobility strategy with the shifting needs of healthcare is often a major project for healthcare providers. A mobile deployment is only successful if you integrate all the pieces.

Follow these guidelines for a mobile strategy that works:

Lead with Your Mobility Strategy

The importance of mobile cannot be overstated. As 80% of Facebook’s ad revenue comes from mobile campaigns, there is no question that users depend on smartphones and tablets as there preferred resource.

For some hospital networks, this means revamping from the ground up. Rather than adapting old technology approaches for new uses, healthcare providers should design engagement with a focus on mobile users.

Security Concerns

The widespread use of mobile technology and cloud computing has raised major issues with HIPAA compliance. There have been over 21 million medical records breaches since 2012 with no end to the problem in sight.

As part of deployment and transition to a mobile platform healthcare, networks need to invest in security. This included redesigned protocols and processes for end users.

Integration

As mentioned above, there is a tech growth in every phase of healthcare. Making provisions for the adoption of the IoT, cloud solutions, and machine learning is essential.

Leading with patient needs will help design a mobile system that works. But strategies that also combine the needs of patients with every aspect of administration and care will also create a larger value.

By creating a bottom-up approach many healthcare networks can streamline operations and administrative processes as well.

A Mobility Strategy for Growth

With technology and patient needs changing at a rapid rate, there is a bigger need than ever for a mobile strategy that works. Unfortunately, some healthcare networks and physicians continue to invest in technology solutions that only solve their needs for the near-term.

Unless your mobile solutions can adapt and grow over time you are risking huge expenses down the road. In addition, in an evolving healthcare market, you may lose patients to other providers unless you can meet their expectations for care and service.

Before implementing any mobile solution make sure it can expand over time.
