Today is the last day of this year’s M6 event. We are looking back at three great days with a lot of innovative topics. One topic was about the contribution that mobile applications are making to improve our healthcare experiences.
Nowadays a doctor is much more than only a doctor. As a gatekeeper he is an organizer, a secretary, a health adviser and a lifesaver. Besides this heap of work the amount of patients continues to rise. Therefore doctors and nurses have less and less time for their patients even though the individual caregiving should be what they have to focus on, shouldn’t it?
What if doctors could have all their patients in their pockets? What if all relevant information could be accessed consistently and on the go without gathering up every single piece of important information?
Reflecting the M6 event we see that all this is already possible. With SAP Electronic Medical Report as a mobile application you are able to manage all your patients on your mobile device. It enables a trusted access to the data you need – everywhere in the hospital, even at the hospital bed and in real-time! Diagnoses, x-rays and healing processes can be collaborated between professionals and can be reviewed together with the patients.
Because of the reduction of the manual caption and the direct access to the data, doctors do not have to battle all the paper work. The doctors could concentrate on their real work, have more time for their patients and could coordinate care better.
I was fascinated that innovation contributes so much to our daily life. You have to keep in mind that this is only one mobile application improving the health of all of us. – This and much more was discussed at the M6 event 2014. For more information visit the M6 website.
If you were not able to attend the M6 this year and you are more interested in this topic, I would suggest watching this video about the Charité in Berlin. You can get insights into Europe’s leading university hospital and its use of mobile technology.
