Your smartphone is going to help patients make better health care decisions.

 

The time for mobile health has come. Both patients and health care providers (HCPs) are becoming increasingly dependent on mobile technologies.

 

Currently, more than two-thirds of physicians have incorporated mobile devices into their day-to-day practice. The smartphone is becoming essential for professional use and, according to a recent study by Telenor Group, it is the most popular technology among doctors since the stethoscope.

 

The reason for such quick uptake of mobile devices among HCPs is that good mobile apps solve real problems in clinical settings. Physicians use smartphones and tablets for medical references, dosage calculations, treatment guidelines and patient education. Mobile devices also help HCPs to manage administrative tasks through email and online schedules.
