Are you ready to take clinical mobility and collaboration to the next level?

Prepare to streamline your communication with a seamless strategy.

Highly connected SCADA systems are critical to optimizing performance in the energy sector, but this also makes them prime targets for cyberattack. Use this checklist to help make sure you deploy a security strategy robust enough to protect your infrastructure from disruption or shutdown.

Key Considerations for a Successful Deployment

Do I have executive sponsorship?

Designing and deploying a clinical mobility strategy is complex. It involves a coordinated approach across multiple departments for a successful deployment. Do you have the support and sponsorship from your leadership team to successfully embark on this journey?

Have I considered the needs of my clinical end users?

Given their intimate knowledge of clinical workflows, clinicians are the first and foremost source of input when selecting new mobile devices, apps and communication technologies. What are their biggest pain points? Needs and preferences? Ergonomic factors?

Do I have a handle on my current application landscape?

What are the clinical communication and collaboration applications already in place? Are these effective at managing existing and new workflows? Do they readily integrate with other apps and my EHR? Are they working hard enough to promote the best care possible?

Have I performed a gap analysis of my IT infrastructure?

Do I have the proper network connectivity to support wireless mobile devices and emerging technologies that unify voice, video and text? Do I have sufficient bandwidth to ensure connectivity? Do I have enough power, charging and docking solutions to maintain continuity?

Do I have the right security management strategy?

Have I done a security assessment to understand the security posture of my end users? Do I have the right two-factor authentication tools in place? Does my Mobile Device Management platform adequately support endpoint protection? Am I prepared for future cyberthreats?

Am I fully leveraging my EHR investment?

Do my clinical mobility and collaboration technologies leverage my existing EHR investment, complement its inherent clinical capabilities and promote interoperability through seamless integration? Is it serving as a companion to my current EHR system?
