author introduction: IBM’s public sector business general manager Dan Pelino manages company in politics, education, health care and life sciences industry business. As he described in this paper, by TechCrunch editor.

we are already taking patients as the center, health system on the basis of the empirical and become more efficient, it also highlights the mobile technologies from the daily health work process of the problem. If we really want to keep the patient as the center of the medical system, then the situation must be changed.

now clinicians can use a lot of effective information to help them make some tailored for the patient’s decision, and their complex in coordinating patient care needs but also for the treatment of chronic diseases, also improved the care for the elderly. Although mobile technology has improved a lot, however, there are still some big gaps need to be offset, want to directly to the health nursing coordination analysis and appear in front of patients is still unlikely.

every day, clinical doctors are trying to coordinate care needs, collect information about health care, so as to do some customized for each patient the right decision. Today’s mobile medical system increasingly mature, if we can through the transformation of the mode of doctors and nurses to fulfill its obligations of care to patients around the reconfiguration of daily medical workflow, the results?

however, achieve reconfiguration is not only to ensure that the mobile device and hospital IT infrastructure and safety, seamless connection between electronic medical record, design an important data accurately can import suppliers, to improve patient care and decision-making system software is also a big challenge.

today, the majority of doctors are using smartphones, 68% of them use the iPhone, 59% use the device. These mobile devices, however, did not well into their in hospitals and health care system. Mobile devices will not be used to view the basic medical records or search the latest clinical diagnosis for background information.

Want to achieve this requirement, the smartphone and tablet need common connected to a network of highly secure, the privacy of data also should be put in extremely in the cloud storage, only authorized providers and patients to access and use of sensitive health information. Of course, the management and control of network and data needs to be special.

only in the case of mobile medical safety, the future of a series of technical progress to bring the real personalized health care experience to each patient. Maybe we can put the patient on a mobile device data uploaded to the health care system. People daily wear or use such as fitness tracking, inspection equipment such as machine blood sugar and blood pressure cuff if to upload data, so when your health is not normal, caregivers can get the alarm in time.

in the end, the smartphone and tablet will continue to change in communication between health care workers and patients and to take care of the way. To really build a more secure, complete mobile health care system, the patient is the first point.
