Mobile Technology in the Hospital

Mobile devices are revolutionizing the way doctors work.

Medical students and residents particularly benefit from mobile technology, as they are able to record what’s going on and go back to study it later. In addition, rather than relying on memory to describe what happened to a patient, doctors and medical students are able to make videos to share with specialists if necessary.

In addition to cell phone videos, tablets are also being used to pull up medical records across a hospitals’ database. Being able to access records on the tablet saves precious time in emergency situations.

Patients also feel more connected to their doctors, as they are able to see test results and records right from the doctors’ tablet.
