Mobile Devices and Solutions for Healthcare

Mobile Devices and Solutions for Healthcare

  • Comments 7

I'm going to be on the road the next few weeks for a business trip and some vacation.  While I'm away, I wanted to share two brand new videos in my House Calls for Healthcare Professionals series of audio and video programs. The topic is Mobile Devices and Solutions for Healthcare Professionals.

In the first program, we review four popular mobile devices running Windows Mobile 6.0.  If you're like me, you can't wait to get your hands on a cool new phone and we've got some really neat ones to show you.

 

 

 

 

imageIn the second program, the CEO of IQMax, Paul Adkison, joins me for a look at the company's solutions for mobile healthcare professionals.  The dictation feature alone was enough to capture my attention!  By the way, IQMax offers a free demo of their mobile solutions.  To sign up for a demo just click here.

  • Seems like this blog is running in circles - this is a repeatition of February post. There are same recurring themes all the time: mobile solutions (Windows mobile), use of Microsoft Unified communications etc. It is getting really boring ...  

  • Guest,

    Thanks for your comment.  Yes, themes are the same (infrastructure, mobility, communication, collaboration, portals, business intelligence, medical devices, consumer health, etc.).  However, the content is new.  One thing is certain in both IT and health, there is always something new to talk about.  In this particular case we are looking at four new mobile devices and an interesting solution for mobile medical professionals.

    This is not true - it all has been done already...

    Protocols and interfaces are all standard - in the nutshell it is just moving bits over the wire anyway

  • Being in the hospital recently I saw more doctors using these windows mobile devices.

  • This is a great article and good comments from Dr. Bill Crounse at Microsoft. from ABC News.   If

  • This is a great idea but very outdated. The Windows Mobile operating system is outdated, Palm is about out of business and RIM is struggling.

    If this is a truly browser specific application that pushes information to Physicians, should it not work on any platform like MicroBloggingMD by M2 Information Systems? Their product will even let you sign off on Critical Labs, Radiology Reprts, Progress Notes and even Transcription. They seem to be the whole package! IQMax / IQRounds seems like a product of the past!

  • Todd,

    Thanks for your comment.  If you looked at the posting date for this piece on HealthBlog you will note that I published it two years ago.  So yes, the information is dated.  IQMax works on almost any mobile device (not just Windows) and their current solution offerings have most certainly advanced since I wrote this.  There are also other good solutions on the market.  Choice is always a good thing.
