Healthcare Lags Other Industries in Implementing Mobile Technologies

Voalte, the leader in mobile healthcare communication alternatives for hospitals, today released its latest white paper, “Get Smart: Hospitals Play Communication Catch-Up.” According to the white paper, healthcare lags behind other industries in adopting and implementing smartphones.

The white paper cites the 2013 Clinical Communication Trends Special Report, which found nearly three-quarters of hospital nurses use smartphones in their personal lives, yet only 25 percent of nurses have the same technology to support their work. The special report also found that landlines continue to dominate smartphones in hospitals by 3-to-1, despite nearly half of American adults owning a personal smartphone.

The white paper references an independent study that found U.S. hospitals are losing over $8 billion each year by using outdated communication technology. However, the use of smartphones is much more common in a variety of other industries, including agriculture, construction, household appliance, retail and small business. These businesses have discovered innovative smartphone uses that save time, increase productivity and reduce costs.

With the adoption of smart mobile devices, the white paper finds that the healthcare industry can increase profitability and improve operational efficiencies. To download the full white paper, please visit the Voalte White Paper Library.
