HIT Consultant writes: 74 percent of hospitals that use tablets or other mobile devices to collect information from patients are more efficient than those that don’t, according to a new report by Ricoh. The report reveals more than half (54 percent) say patients are less anxious during hospital visits when healthcare providers use tablets or other mobile devices to perform data collection. These are among the findings of an online survey conducted by Harris Poll of more than 2,000 adults in the United States on behalf of Ricoh Americas Corporation. The focus was information mobility in American hospitals, the ability to efficiently move information among clinical and administrative workers regardless of whether it’s paper-based or digital.
