The future of healthcare operations in the United Kingdom is definitely visible on the horizon and it’s safe to say that the improvement that has been concluded to take place, is projected to show a positive overall approval rate from patients and doctors alike. Studies have shown that there is a higher demand for services and support that are not sustainable with any existing resources and methodologies, already put in place. Hospital workers are increasingly searching for way to reduce strain on an already fragile system through automation tactics.
It’s projected that Clinical Mobility is the true answer here. Hospitals around the country and even the world are eliminating the use of manual and error-prone strategies and procedures by replacing them with more digitized solutions that can increase the accuracy of patient care and engagement. This collected data can then be recorded and transmitted in real-time to staff members, so to further save time and cut back on errors.
The use of Mobile Devices in the Healthcare realm will be all the norm in just a few years. Rich mobile applications, such as remote patient monitoring and artificial intelligence, will simplify the daily workflow and even empower physicians with greater insights and knowledge on how to treat their patients. The average nurse is on her feet, walking the hospital hallways, for up to five miles in one 12-hour shift, running from room to room, to make sure patients are accommodated accordingly. According to the study, nurses will be able to improve their efficiency working at their patients’ bedsides with the assistance of mobile devices.
When a nurse is equipped with the most up-to-date information about their patients, they are able to spend more time by the patients’ bedside, better prioritize alarms, and optimize workflows with improved communication amongst their co-workers. 78% of nurse mangers would then be able to credit clinical mobility with improving staff communication and collaboration as well as the quality of patient care.
Clinicians are always facing the overwhelming pressure to becoming tech-savvy and with this collaboration of mobile devices in healthcare, there is a way. That being said, however, these devices must be able to withstand the repeated need for cleaning and disinfection to eliminate the spread of unwanted bacteria and diseases.
