One-on-One Training Sessions Accelerate the Adoption of Mobile Healthcare Technology and Lower Costs
AUSTIN, Texas, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Movero Technology, a leading provider of managed IT services for enterprise mobility, today announced that it has delivered over 10,000 hands-on training sessions for physicians and healthcare professionals deploying mobile ePrescription applications on handheld devices.
According to the Institute of Medicine, medication mistakes are among the most common medical errors in the U.S., harming at least 1.5 million people every year. Additionally, the extra medical costs of treating drug-related injuries occurring in hospitals alone conservatively amount to $3.5 billion each year. By writing prescriptions electronically, healthcare providers can avoid many of the mistakes that accompany handwritten prescriptions. Additionally, most mobile e-prescribing applications offer healthcare providers immediate access to patient prescription histories, drug interaction checking, and the secure transmission of prescription scripts directly to a pharmacy.
"The healthcare industry is experiencing increased pressure to become more efficient and lower costs while still providing exceptional patient care," said Melanie Gray, CEO of Movero. "Leveraging mobile technology to provide point-of-care reference information helps physicians lower costs while enhancing patient care and improving health outcomes."
According to a recent research study commissioned by Motorola, more than 80 percent of global IT decision makers within the healthcare industry stated that mobile technologies are more important to their organizations today than they were in 2008. Respondents cited key benefits such as increased order fulfillment accuracy, reduced manual errors and increased employee productivity due to the utilization of mobile technologies within various clinical settings.
"By providing in-depth, one-on-one training for physicians interested in adopting mobile e-prescription technology, Movero is addressing an identified healthcare industry pain point," said John Smolucha, vice president of marketing for Movero. "Everyone benefits. Doctors get the ability to quickly access medication histories and critical drug information directly at the point of care. Patients experience better outcomes with a reduced risk of medication errors and adverse events. Hospitals, providers and insurance companies can lower operating costs."
The one-on-one physician training program, now in its fifth year of operation, complements Movero's leading suite of managed mobile IT services including procurement, staging and logistics, invoice management, expense management and 24x7 certified mobility support to provide an integrated solution that fully covers the entire lifecycle of mobile devices for healthcare organizations.
