One of Health Care Professionals’ most frequent uses for mobile devices is information and time management. Popular information management apps, such as Evernote and Notability, enable users to write or dictate notes, record audio, store photographs, and organize material into categories within a searchable electronic database. E-book reader apps, such as GoodReader and iAnnotate, allow users to view, underline, highlight, enlarge, and annotate text in PDF files.
Cloud-based storage and file-sharing services that can be accessed using a mobile device are also useful for information management, since they allow users to store, update, and share documents or photographs with others without exchanging a flash drive or CD.
Dropbox is a popular cloud-based storage service that can be used with multiple devices. Google
Drive also allows file uploading, sharing, and management through Google Docs.
SkyDrive, a cloud-based storage service that is compatible with mobile devices, uses the Windows 8 operating system.
An additional advantage provided by information management apps is that they can be used in combination. For example, GoodReader can be connected to a cloud service, allowing PDF files to be downloaded from the cloud into the reader app.
Evernote, as well as some other information management apps, can be used in conjunction with a cloud service and reader. This enables a PDF downloaded from the cloud to be viewed with a reader, then sections of the document can be cut and
pasted into the information management app.
HCPs frequently use mobile device apps for time management. This doesn’t require a special app;
native apps that come installed on mobile devices are often sufficient to organize and track appointments, meetings, call schedules, and other clinical obligations.
Some common uses of mobile devices by HCPs for Information and time management are as follows:
- Write notes
- Dictate notes
- Record audio
- Take photographs
- Organize information and images
- Use e-book reader
- Access cloud service
- Schedule appointments
- Schedule meetings
