Abstract

Information access and entry at the location of the patient encounter is a goal for many health care providers. This need can be satisfied by having a workstation at every counter location or by a mobile workstation that can be brought to the location of the encounter. Initial results from a mobile computing pilot project conducted at The Johns Hopkins Hospital have shown the potential this technology holds for the health care industry. As standards are introduced for wireless technology and new products come into the marketplace, widespread information access to the patient encounter is expected.
