A well-executed mobile health (mHealth) solution can help a hospital with its population health and readmission reduction initiatives. Successful implementation of an mHealth solution requires a campaign to persuade physicians to use it.
BACKGROUND: Worldwide, rural communities face barriers when accessing health services. In response, numerous initiatives have focused on fostering technological innovations, new management approaches and health policies.
An increasing number of hospital libraries are supporting the use of tablet computers such as iPads for access to information resources. To date, this adoption of tablets is not supported by high-quality research evidence.
E-readers provide an opportunity for hospital librarians to reach out to staff and patients with new approaches to library lending. Librarians in four Veterans Health Administration medical centers are using e-readers to enlarge their scope of service in unique ways.
mHealth Evidence is expanding to include grey literature in the growing body of evidence.
