Dr. Jun Huang Presentation Synopsis
Different clinical workflows and settings require varying degree of mobility support for clinicians. Inpatient, outpatient, ER and other scenarios have some common needs for mobile applications but the needs also differ significantly between the scenarios. Furthermore, mobile applications are just the tip of the iceberg in the end-to-end system architecture and require significant flexibility in the underlying backend systems.
This presentation outlines what the author has learnt about physician usage of mobile applications through his personal experience of working with physicians in different workflow scenarios and clinical settings. It also discusses the architectural challenges that face the mobile application development community.
