Mobile technologies offer new ways of working and have the potential to deliver improved patient care with impressive productivity and service advantages for field-based workers in healthcare. Vodafone mHealth Solutions can support the daily activities of field workers, ranging from pharmaceutical sales representatives and medical technology service managers to physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals working outside the office environment. By giving them the tools they need to work from any location – including their homes – we are helping them to improve their work-life balance.
In addition, Mobile Flexible Working solutions are transforming the patient experience. Healthcare practitioners can remotely access and upload data to in-hospital systems, including patient medical records, at the point of care, allowing practitioners to spend more time with patients, end customers and colleagues in a more informed way whilst spending less time on administrative tasks.
As an example, Vodafone has helped NHS Cumbria deliver greater home and community-based healthcare to patients in the South Lakeland region by empowering and equipping their team to connect securely to central systems on-the-move. The result? They can now complete administration and update records remotely, which cuts administration time by 15 per cent. That means more community visits, faster decision making at the point of care and greater patient confidence.

In South Africa, Vodafone is working with non-Government organisations and the Department of Health to boost the quality of patient care.
