 December 09th, 2014

Over half of US hospitals reported use of smartphones and/ or tablet computers at their facilities. 69% of respondents noted that they used apps to access clinical information; however, only 33% reportedly believe they can access most or all of the clinical systems technologies they need via smartphones/tablet computers. One-third of clinicians indicated that use of smartphones / tablet computers would create overall efficiencies in care, such as eliminating redundancies.
