Focus more on outcomes and less on processes
Throughout the health and life sciences industry, organizations are seeking new ways to both streamline operations and rein in spiraling costs. Now, there’s a new way to innovate in health and life sciences: Windows Phone 7.
More and more, health and life sciences professionals are adopting mobile devices for creative, dynamic uses that can help increase efficiency, lower costs, and ultimately improve outcomes. Focusing health and life sciences technology solutions on mobile applications opens up rich new possibilities for accessing and sharing critical information in a timely fashion to improve not only administrative tasks, like records management, but also preventative care, patient and physician interactions, rehabilitation, health-monitoring, decision-making, innovation, and more - at lower costs.
For life sciences, Windows Phone 7 puts innovative, critical applications in reach across the spectrum: from electronic data capture, electronic patient-reported outcomes, and interactive voice and web response technology (IVR and IWR) to e-detailing, closed-loop marketing, sales force automation, and sample management. The possibilities are boundless.
Microsoft is working closely with industry partners to make mobile solutions based on the Windows Phone 7 platform indispensable tools for health and life sciences professionals and for patients. Windows Phone 7 provides seamless access to Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft OneNote, and other familiar tools via the new Microsoft Office Hub, and the Microsoft SharePoint Workspace client supports enhanced collaboration through offline document access and syncing. Integrating these productivity tools into your existing systems can yield benefits across the full spectrum of the health and life sciences environment:
Increased mobility and interoperability
Because it works seamlessly across a myriad of technologies—and with familiar Microsoft productivity tools, like Microsoft Office and Microsoft Exchange—Windows Phone 7 enables health and life science professionals to wirelessly connect to information and resources from virtually any environment. Training time for doctors, nurses, scientists, lab technicians, and other users can be minimized because the solution leverages existing systems with a smart, intuitive user interface.
Streamlined workflow and access to information
Windows Phone 7 can help you reduce or eliminate inefficient paper forms. Health and life science professionals and patients can enter information electronically, helping to minimize errors and streamline processes. Electronic data storage means that care providers can access up-to-date, comprehensive information when it's needed, from virtually anywhere.
Improved patient monitoring and home care
With solutions based on Windows Phone 7, physicians can be alerted to patient risks in real time. Bedside access to patient data enables caregivers to evaluate data and to quickly make decisions that can improve the quality of care.
Windows Phone 7 creates new opportunities for health and life science professionals to share information and to consult with colleagues in real time.
Improved compliance with regulations and privacy concerns
A proven array of defense technologies, from 128-bit to 256-bit SSL encryption and - enhanced access to on-premises applications and network resources using Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG), helps providers comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines for security and privacy requirements.
Mobile solutions based on Windows Phone 7 can play a pivotal role in your health and life science organization, helping you to streamline processes and communications and to improve outcomes as you contain costs.
