Health Information Systems (HIS) are a crucial aspect of any hospital or health system. It is important that the patient’s information electronic health record or EHR is up-to-date, accurate, and secure in the information system for their health and safety. Any health record is only as good as what information it has and how it is used. According to HealthIT.gov, “EHRs can enhance patient safety and provide safer health care through comprehensiveness, speed, flagging potential conflicts, verifying medications and dosages, and reducing the need to repeat risky tests and procedures.”

Here are a few questions to help clarify that previous one. First, can this phone scan and record important information about medications, IV fluids, or patient data? Second, is it sterile enough to be used in areas with critical care patients? Third, do you depend on your phone as an extension of the quality care you provide? Finally, Does the battery on the phone need to last a full 12-hour shift, all while protecting and extending the life and integrity of your phone? If you answered yes to these criteria, then your phone isn’t really a phone, it’s a piece of medical equipment and your case has to do more than simply hold that phone.

In the high-stress environment of hospitals, where lives are constantly on the line, patient care and comfort is a constant yet challenging issue. As anyone who has stayed in a hospital well knows, nurses and doctors perform checks, dispense medication, and prescribe treatments at all hours of the day or night.
