Slow Wireless Implementation in Healthcare?

Happy Friday everyone!

I think everyone is aware that one of the more evolving marketplaces for our industry is healthcare. As evidence, InformationWeek published an article today that explains how the healthcare field is poised for a big shift towards mobility over the next 2-3 years.

It makes perfect sense, especially as data capture is becoming almost entirely digital and many ruggedized devices are being introduced to function as light-weight handheld computers (where mobility, flexibility and durability are key), so it would seem that the healthcare environment is perfect for such a movement.

But the interesting part is why did the industry take so long to begin the “mobility revolution” while others, such as retail and banking (as the article describes), embrace the concept years before?
