Mobile health tools are rapidly being deployed throughout the healthcare industry, enabling providers to do their jobs faster, more efficiently, and essentially on-demand. Still, the role such tools play in helping providers to meet the federal government’s ever expanding Meaningful Use guidelines for the implementation of electronic health records remains unclear.


Mobile technologies and mHealth have huge potential to help providers meet Meaningful Use requirements. They offer clinicians fast and easy access to electronic health records data and can help engage patients in their own health data--both of which are requirements under the final Stage 2 rule and will continue to increase in importance in future stages.


A recent Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center study determined that patients want to view their imaging results as soon as possible, primarily through online patient portals--one of the main elements likely to be used to push patient engagement. As more and more patients access online information via mobile tools, it will be imperative for healthcare organizations to meet their patients in those spaces.

This webinar will focus on how providers can take advantage of the growing cadre of mobile health tools to help them in meeting their Meaningful Use goals.
