The number of mobile devices in healthcare facilities is increasing rapidly, as is the diversity of mobile platforms, operating systems (OSes) and communication methods that need to be supported by these organizations. In fact, in remarks made at George Washington University Hospital in Washington D.C., FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said that healthcare is being "transformed" by broadband, and called out wireless and mobile in particular. For its part in this transformation, Genachowski said, "The FCC is pursuing a health strategy with three key components: promoting connectivity; fostering fast-paced innovation of wireless networks, medical devices and mobile apps; encouraging greater adoption of life-saving health technology; and ensuring that spectrum is optimally allocated and managed." So on the outside, infrastructure and promotion is progressing, but what does mobility in healthcare look like from the inside?
