Microsoft - How do you access patient data from a mobile device?

Mobility in Health: The Power of Clinical Grade Tablets for Healthcare

Health workers want to stay connected wherever their day takes them—in the field, in the hospital, or at home. And they want to do it from the devices they choose. With Microsoft mobility in health solutions, you can provide clinicians, administrators, and patients with personalized access to health information from virtually any device, anytime, anywhere. Most importantly, you can ensure you have all the appropriate protection features in place to help safeguard patient, health, and organizational data.

Windows Device Features

When choosing the right device for your healthcare environment, it’s important to understand the needs of the worker who will be utilizing this device. Windows devices support a number of input methods relevant in health—from on-screen keyboards, to high quality handwriting and pen input. The ability to connect keyboards and mice when the device is put down on a desk enables both mobile and desk-based working on one device rather than having to carry multiple devices.

Windows devices come with inbuilt security, and because they connect easily to the network, they can fit easily into existing security processes and technologies—reducing the cost and complexity barrier to entry.

Microsoft Tablet

Windows Apps and Devices Enable:

  • Single, specified app experience on patient devices or check-in kiosks reduce redundancy
  • Native keyboard, mouse, and pen support clinicians and patient apps improve accuracy
  • Direct interaction with Electronic Medical Records
  • Integrated biometric and smartcard support for multiple secure logons

Clinical Mobility and Collaboration

Increase efficiency by using a single device for all tasks. Clinicians can access patient data and collaborate and connect with colleagues on one device, making it easy to securely share information and data with multiple team members.

Ruggedized devices can be used in multiple care settings and enable access to care information in scenarios where traditionally only pen and paper could be trusted. These devices operate in exactly the same way as other Windows devices in the care settings, but are able to meet the demands of clinical environments like ER departments and ambulances.

Native Mira cast capabilities enable clinicians to wirelessly share their tablet screens with TV's and monitors in patient rooms, or in educational settings.

Community Care

Enable mobile, secure access to records and clinical resources when the caregiver is offsite in a non-hospital environment. Many devices have 3G/4G capabilities and offer a more secure and efficient way of connecting back to the clinical systems, wherever the caregiver is.

Security is always a concern with devices that don't return to IT on a regular basis. Windows 8.1 devices are encrypted, support enterprise IT security, and include new features like "Selective wipe" for easy removal of corporate data.
