Answer:

The introduction of mobile computing devices like smartphones and tablet computers has impacted greatly in many fields including health care. They combine both computing and communication features in a single device that can be handheld or stored in a pocket, allowing easing access and use at the point of care. Apart from voice and text, these new mobile models offer more advanced features such as GPS (Global Positioning System), high-quality cameras, and sound recorders. There is evidence that reveal a high ownership rate of these devices which health care professionals use in both clinical practice and education. Smartphones and tablets have even replaced desktop systems as the preferred computing devices for health care professionals (HCPs) who require faster access to information at the point of care.

HCPs require access to many types of resources that include voice calling, video conferencing, text, and email, health information systems, electronic health records, electronic medical records, and clinical decision support systems. With the availability of mobile devices, clinicians have access to a wellspring of information at their fingertips through their smartphones and tablets. Medical apps are available for many purposes including ones for electronic prescribing, diagnosis and treatment, practice management, and coding and billing. Mobile apps also help clinicians identify the appropriate scans or tests, decreasing unnecessary procedures and reducing cost of care. HCPs even can perform simple clinical score calculations quickly to produce a reliable result which greatly serves patient management. Mobile devices have also been used to remotely monitor and collect medical data regarding chronically ill elderly patients.
