The advent of technology in the 21st century has seen an increase in the employ of the phenomenon in the healthcare setting. An increased number of healthcare institutions are aligning their operations to the principles set forth by health informatics. Health informatics predicates that healthcare institutions should store medical data on various databases. This serves to ease the access of medical record during treatment to streamline treatment initiatives.
Consequently, to reinforce the ease of access to medical records, many healthcare organizations are creating mobile platforms that give patients easy access to personal records. However, to successfully upgrade to the mobile initiative, healthcare institutions should engage several principles. Firstly, it is necessary that the healthcare settings determine departments within the operational framework that will be tasked with the management of the mobile database framework to enhance its efficiency (HealthIT, 2016). The creation of a department solely intended to address the mobile platform communicates the significance with which the institutions regard the initiative.
Likewise, hospitals should engage cyber security firms and other spy security programs to curtail the possibility of medical data theft. It is easier to access information on the mobile phone platform rather than in the computer databases. In addition, hackers will increasingly attempt to jeopardize the mobile platform. Therefore it is imperative that the hospitals determine strategies, which will be used to preempt the occurrence of such thefts. Some of the security strategies engaged will include the development of security teams within the organization (HealthIT, 2016). Also, it is vital that hospitals outsource the protection of mobile databases to outside companies so that security is guaranteed.
Lastly, the hospitals should determine the implementation process. The documentation of the implementation process should include the amount to be extended towards the upgrade, the schedule of the upgrade, the training of the hospital personnel and consider the alignment of the prevailing hospital operations to the mobile platforms to ensure continuity.
