USA Mobility jumping from pagers to smartphones, tablets with acquisition of Amcom

The use of mobile devices in the health industry is not ubiquitous yet, but researchers who track the sector say it is trending that direction. The government's push for hospitals to use electronic records - while also reducing the cost of care - has expedited the adoption of newer technology.

"The hospital administrators, especially at large group practices, already realize if you put a smart tool in physicians' hands they can use the device to the point where their productivity can be improved and doctor and patient communication can be strengthened," said Harry Wang, director of health and mobile product research at the Dallas research firm Parks Associates.
