An actionable and practical resource to accelerate mobile computing in medicine: No topic in healthcare technology is more urgent and yet more elusive to date than mobile computing in medicine. It adheres to no boundaries, stagnates in silos, and demands not just the attention of dedicated professionals, but also teams of teams.

A rich resource, this book shares hard-won lessons and primary research for better understanding, management, and execution of key mobile computing initiatives in medicine (that can save patient lives by reducing delays in medical information). It provides an action planning reference guide for mobile medicine stakeholders, including health system and insurance decision makers, clinicians, and investors. Foundational and groundbreaking in its knowledge set and combination, it also provides a unique and rare perspective, drawing from 27 distinct experts across disciplines from legal to medicine, informatics, organizational psychology, cybersecurity to engineering - the building blocks needed to catalyze a comprehensive mobile medicine strategy for your health system or investment thesis.

Considering we lose a family member, colleague, or someone else every nine minutes due to a delay in medical information according to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, this book makes significant strides in efficiently conveying foundational knowledge that can contribute to implementing mobile computing safely and cost-effectively while improving clinician and patient experiences in healthcare. These insights will accelerate the reader's ability to conceptualize the real opportunities via mobile computing in medicine.
