Vodafone launches mHealth Professional


Operator introduces new healthcare services with the aim of better supporting patients and driving productivity

Vodafone UK has launched mHealth Professional, a suite of mobile solutions that can be tailored to any healthcare specialism to help workers better support patients and drive productivity.

The operator said mHealth Professional is a suite of “cost-effective, mobile and flexible working tools, services and applications”.

Features include access to patient records from smartphones, secure remote access to information and systems, tools to monitor an employee’s location and respond to threats to their safety when they are away from the office or hospital as well as a digital pen to electronically record and store handwritten information.

Vodafone claimed healthcare organisations will see benefits such as less paperwork, secure access to patient data and the ability to update patient records at any time, greater efficiencies of time and resources and the peace of mind that healthcare workers can work safely from wherever they need to. Workers will also be able to spend more time with patients and see more of them during a working day.

Vodafone UK enterprise director Peter Kelly said: “The drive towards delivering care to patients within their homes means innovative mobile technologies that allow healthcare professionals to work easily and effectively in local communities are vital.

“Our mHealth Professional healthcare-specific and mobile working solutions support a genuine and very real need in the healthcare sector. Healthcare workers who use this cost-effective technology can be highly productive and most importantly are able to make better-informed decisions at the point of care.”
