Mobile health care is moving from an additional way for many health care professionals and patients to access health information to the central way they access, communicate, and collaborate. The rapid proliferation of gesture-driven smart phones, tablets, and mobile medical devices combined with the availability of high speed wireless networks create new opportunities for providers to support ever-more complex clinical processes across the care continuum and more enabled engagement between caregivers and patients. However, many organizations are overwhelmed with choices, bogged down by their incumbent vendors, and unsure how to manage and secure the proliferation of mobile devices being brought into their organizations. We provide imperatives for providers in key mobile health domains, including social media, patient monitoring, disease management, and wellness.
