Tablets transforming healthcare practices
Of the many industries that can take advantage of recent advances in mobile technology, perhaps one of the greatest beneficiaries is the healthcare sector. According to a recent whitepaper from research firm Frost & Sullivan, tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices are quickly becoming indispensable to healthcare professionals.
“The healthcare sector has never been known for being an early adopter of information technology,” says Frost & Sullivan analyst Jeanine Sterling. “However, now there are innovative, powerful mobile devices that must be recognized as absolutely key to expanding and improving patient care, to controlling costs and to complying with regulatory mandates.”
