What: Overcoming Cloud-Based Mobility Challenges in Healthcare
Description: Smartphone and tablet devices are out-pacing PCs as the primary means for accessing email and internet. In fact, by 2015 it’s estimated that more U.S. Internet users will access the Internet through mobile devices than through PCs or other wireline devices. While many organizations realize they must embrace the mobile channel to keep their customers and employees engaged, becoming mobile-enabled has historically been complex and cost-prohibitive.
In addition to standard challenges like platform fragmentation and hidden costs of maintenance, healthcare organizations face even more scrutiny by the FDA and must adhere to HIPAA compliance standards set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services. As daunting as it may sound, the path to mobility for healthcare is already within reach.
Please join April Sage, Online Tech’s Director, Healthcare Vertical, and Rich Mendis, Chief Marketing Officer at AnyPresence Inc, for an interactive webinar on July 17, 2012 at 2:00 PM ET. During this session, April and Rich will review the common challenges associated with mobile enablement, and will introduce the new technologies that are empowering healthcare providers to securely engage their patients and practitioners through the mobile channel.
