With the fast past digital transformations it is a no brainer when it comes to mobilising health care technology. Eddie Olla, CIO of Sherwood Forest Hospitals Foundation Trust stated that mobility has increased productivity with faster access to information. However, this mobility movement may cause risks when maintaining patients’ data.
Methods of virtualization allow doctors to access information from any computer whether being in the network or not.
