In our June 23rd post we described some of the healthcare applications that occur outside of the four walls and the popular mobility solutions for healthcare businesses with field workers. Today I’d like to take a closer look at what mobile diagnostic and home health care businesses can do by moving to automation.
Home health care and mobile diagnostic businesses rely on workers in the field to provide mobile medical services to patients who can’t be treated on-site. Mobile solutions provide healthcare field workers with the tools they need on-the-go, while also providing the back office with web-based dispatching and the ability to assign and track visits in real-time. Supplying your mobile healthcare workers with handheld mobile devices enables them to:
- View historical patient data in the field
- Capture readings-dispensed pharmaceuticals, medical supplies issued and treatments
- Capture images of wounds
- Capture signatures for proof-of-completion
- Populate electronic forms with arrival and departure time for insurance and billing
Collected data is transmitted to the back office in real-time, allowing management to access and report on patient visit information.
