To best optimise the exchange of patient information and treatments between medical sector professionals, staff must collaborate efficiently, effectively and securely.
Secure Encrypted Mobile Data Transmissions
Most healthcare professionals are already using their own mobile devices to text co-workers about job-related topics. Texting is an extremely fast and efficient way to communicate on the job. It helps staff avoid the delays and frustrations associated with unanswered phone calls and telephone tag. However, unless texting capabilities are implemented in a way that complies with regulatory requirements, these communications can put information security and privacy at risk.
Clinicians enjoy a dual persona: one device – two numbers – work and personal. This is done securely with mobile device management. This means your personal data (e.g. images, videos, texts) is on a separate part of your mobile device and your work information (e.g. patient records, emails) is kept in a password protected part of your mobile device meaning patient details and clinical data is secure.
Hospitals can leverage Wi-Fi vs. carrier networks for mobile unified communications usage resulting in hospitals keeping staff mobile while reducing expensive cellular costs.
