63 Percent of Hospitals and Health Systems Surveyed Have Now Deployed Smartphones

On Wednesday, Spyglass Consulting Group released its most recent healthcare study entitled Large-scale Smartphone-based deployments enable hospital-wide communications.   
 
Overall, the study shows that 63 percent of hospitals and health systems surveyed have deployed or plan to deploy a mobile communications platform supporting more than 500 Smartphones over the next 12 to 18 months.
 
According to a news release, these deployments “address the mission- and patient-critical communications required by nurses and other mobile hospital workers across the enterprise.”
 
Spyglass found that forty-four percent of organizations surveyed had developed comprehensive mobile communications strategies to address the current and future communications and collaboration requirements of nurses, care team members, and other mobile hospital workers.
 
“While initial deployments are often limited to support clinical messaging between nurses and their support staff within targeted medical departments,” said Gregg Malkary, Managing Director of the Spyglass Consulting Group, “many organizations quickly expand the scope and usage models to include all hospital workers and workflows across medical departments, standalone hospitals, and ambulatory environments and clinics.”
