The Benefits of Using Mobile Devices in Healthcare

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities have been tasked with increased documentation activities required under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), and other regulations. At the same time, many facilities face staffing shortages and budget cuts, while still being expected to improve the quality of care.

Using mobile devices in healthcare applications can relieve the burden of manually collecting, verifying, and entering data into an electronic medical record (EMR), while at the same time improving caregiver communication and the quality of care.

Using mobile devices, doctors and nurses can scan barcoded patient wristbands, charts, and medications in order to ensure accurate medication administration and treatment. Mobile devices can also be used to manage pharmacy inventory, for asset management, and for other types of materials and inventory tracking throughout the hospital.

While mobile devices in healthcare are often rugged, moisture-resistant devices that were purpose-built for these applications, there are also other options that incorporate popular consumer devices. Healthcare providers can also integrate popular mobile devices like the Apple iPhone into these solutions using custom applications and specially designed sleds. For example, Honeywell’s Captuvo SL42h sled for the iPhone and Captuvo SL22h for the iPod touch provide an integrated barcode scanner and disinfectant-ready protective housing and sealed screen protector that can turn a phone into a clinical computing device. By outfitting a commonly used phone with a robust barcode scanner and hot swappable external battery pack, healthcare organizations get the advantages of an easy-to-use interface, along with the performance of a purpose-built mobile computing device.

Mobile devices in the healthcare setting can also be used for the direct management of patient care. Nurses and doctors must frequently pause during care activities to enter data into stationary computers in order to update the electronic medical record (EMR) or enter notes into a paper chart. There are now applications available that allow clinicians to update charts on the go using mobile phones, hand-held computers, or tablets. Nurses can consult the plan of care without leaving the bedside and returning to the nursing station.

Communication among clinicians can also be improved. Using converged mobile devices like smartphones can help hospitals replace the disparate collection of pagers, VOIP phones, barcode scanners and other devices that doctors and nurses carry. Instead, they can access the EMR, patient alerts, and secure text and voice messages on a single platform. Doing so also reduces IT cost and complexity for the facility.

In addition, clinicians can access mobile apps for electronic prescribing, diagnosis and treatment, practice management, coding and billing, and other activities. This reduces the administrative burden for physicians and improves efficiency. Doctors can see more patients each day, and clinicians can potentially avoid dangerous medical errors because the information they need is right in their hands.

With mobile technology, healthcare professionals are equipped to be well-coordinated care teams. Mobility can provide immediate improvements in efficiency and patient care. These solutions also improve the way doctors, nurses and other end users utilize the electronic medical record and interact with each other and patients.

Can iPads Improve the Efficiency of Healthcare Specimen Tracking?

The healthcare industry relies on accuracy—without it, patients are left with less than optimal care. But the environment of hospitals and laboratories can make that difficult, especially when dealing with healthcare specimen tracking.

The traditional method for specimen tracking often involves manually entering data. They pick up a specimen and handwrite the tracking information on the form. This tracking information is key-entered into their laptop, which then prints another form to travel with the specimen. These tracking sheets are easily damaged and the handwritten information could be hard to read, making manually entering it even more difficult.

Adding technology to the process of healthcare specimen tracking can reduce the amount of tracking errors and improving efficiency in the process of getting important lab results back to patients. The iPad is an example of newer mobile technology that has become ubiquitous throughout many industries, and that can often include the healthcare industry. If employees within your organization utilize iPads, the only way to completely take full advantage of them is to give them printing capabilities. Combining iPads with mobile printers like the Zebra QL320 creates a robust specimen tracking system that offers a mobile, accurate and efficient solution.

Mobility

iPads allow physicians, technicians, and nurses to take them right to the patient’s bedside. Rather than hand writing the tracking information on the form, hospital staff can utilize the tablet and mobile printer combination to scan the patient’s information, enter the appropriate additional specimen information into their iPad, and print a barcode label without ever leaving the patient’s room.

Accuracy

Accurate healthcare specimen tracking is a necessity. Some specimens are irreplaceable—the loss of them would result in catastrophe for trying to diagnose the patient, exposing the patient to danger and the hospital to lawsuits. This can be prevented with accurate healthcare specimen tracking using iPads and mobile printers. Attaching a label to a specimen immediately after it has been taken prevents it from being lost or mislabeled.

Barcode printers like the Zebra QL320 can also print custom labels that are color coded based on the hospital or lab’s system. This allows staff to quickly recognize the type of specimen or its priority level.

In a lab or hospital setting, it’s important to have labels that can withstand being exposed to spills. Zebra products are durable, so even if they’re exposed to moisture or the specimen spills, the lab technicians will still be able to scan the specimen and ensure testing is completed accurately and returned to the proper patient.

Efficiency

Efficiency in healthcare specimen tracking can be difficult to achieve, but the ability to track specimens throughout the process will help ensure that the item has reached the lab, been processed, and returned in an appropriate time period. Knowing where a specimen is in the process can help hospital staff spot problems and inefficiencies in the specimen testing process.

Staff won’t waste time trying to read handwritten tracking sheets and they will waste less time retesting or retaking specimens that have been misplaced or mislabeled. This streamlines the entire patient diagnosis process, and leaves patients feeling confident and comfortable with their hospital.

Implementing a mobile solution like iPads and mobile printers like those from Zebra can provide a more streamlined healthcare specimen tracking process. Samples can be easily identified, tracked, and returned to the right patient, quickly and easily. Not only will your hospital be running more smoothly, but your patients will also be guaranteed peace of mind.
