Putting the Power of Mobile Technology in Patient Care

Healthcare providers today rely on an array of technologies to help manage key workflows, from maintaining electronic medical record (EMR) systems and performing clinical procedures to coordinating consultations and prescribing follow-up care. Yet in many cases, poor integration among technologies and outdated devices can waste time and hamper efforts to efficiently deliver high-quality care.

Refreshing older technologies with new solutions can improve caregiver collaboration, increase efficiency, and address security requirements. For example, caregivers need ways to securely share patient information among colleagues. They also need smooth, fast handoffs from one device or system to another—remembering multiple login passwords and transferring information among systems can be inefficient and time-consuming.

New Whitepaper: Workspace Transformation for Healthcare Providers

In today’s healthcare environment, enhancing communication and collaboration among clinical workers across the continuum of care is critical for producing optimal patient and financial outcomes.

Prescribing the Right Solution

Intel® mobile solutions are designed to help healthcare providers address workflow challenges simply and effectively, so they can refocus their time and resources on their patients. The latest generations of Intel® Core™ vPro™ and Core M vPro processors include technologies designed to easily integrate within the mobile healthcare environment, streamline workflows, and bolster security.

For instance, newer generations of devices can be equipped with WiGig technology, which can be combined with a number of commercially available wireless docking solutions. Those wireless docking stations enable healthcare providers to transition seamlessly between different clinical workstations without the hassle of connecting multiple wires. Clinical teams looking for improved ways to facilitate team-based care can also leverage the Intel® Unite™ platform, which provides a robust set of features to enable collaboration along with multiple layers of security through a simple and secure interface.

Further security measures in Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT) are built into the Intel Core vPro processor architecture. They provide role-based security that prevents unauthorized users from accessing healthcare systems, even if they have a stolen username and passcode.

Other solutions that depend on Intel® technologies include apps for capturing EMR data and using biometrics to access applications. All of these technologies are designed to improve clinical workflows and the patient experience.

The right mobile solutions and platform capabilities can simplify a wide range of communication and collaboration tasks. As a result, caregivers can stay focused on patients.
