mobile healthcare industryWhile mobility may have started out as a consumer-driven trend, it is now a movement being driven and shaped by a global business community looking to capitalize on the benefits of increased workplace productivity. 

This has led to an increasing demand for mobility and multi-function applications – especially in the healthcare industry. Juniper Research predicts that mHealth apps could reach 142 million downloads by 2016.

Recent results from a Vanson Bourne global study further cemented the future impact and business benefits of the mobile revolution. The data showed that 92% of organizations believe that adopting mobile apps will give them a competitive edge.

However, two-thirds of those surveyed in the Vanson Bourne study are concerned that they lack the skills to develop and maintain an appropriate, modern app in-house. Organizations must bridge this widening “App Gap” between end-user demands for mobile devices and the business’ ability to bring user-friendly apps that securely and effectively integrate critical back-end data and systems.

Infian, a provider of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Billing Services & Software for the healthcare industry, is one company that is taking mobility head on. As the healthcare industry has evolved into its current cloud, mobility and “bring your own device” environments, Infian has worked with Progress Software to develop solutions to help medical centers and physician offices easily and securely manage patient care while remaining compliant.

Taking a “write once, run anywhere” approach, Infian developers can continuously update applications as the mobile market evolves and new devices are introduced and allow clinicians to focus on what’s most important, quality of care.
