Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today – On the move with mHealth: Nurses develop mobile health tools – (866) 348-2889

Mobile health technology has broadened nurses’ horizons beyond what anyone could have imagined, giving them the ability to improve care and communication and educate patients in managing their own health. No longer do nurses need to assess and make clinical decisions based only on office visits, episodic emergency care and hospitalizations. By using technologies from smartphones to wearable activity trackers and Web-based or downloadable apps, they can monitor patients in the home setting.

Healthcare professionals and organizations have only begun to scratch the surface of this avenue in caring for and educating patients, families and communities.
