Medical Professionals Say Tablets Make Them Happier, More Productive at Work

According to the recently published findings of a survey spearheaded by CDW, tablet computers and related mobile technologies are making lives easier for medical professionals across the board.

152 healthcare providers who tap their tablets to help perform clinical work say that their tablets (mostly iPads and Kindle Fire devices) make them happier and more productive at work.

Although the survey also explored tablet usage among media and large business respondents, higher education respondents, and state and local government respondents, the feedback from healthcare industry workers is being discussed most today, largely in response to the optimism it lends to the growth of the mHealth ecosystem.

“The poll reveals increasing comfort level with mobile work, as well as the great utility of tablet technology for employees in all types of organizations,” says Joe Woods, CDW’s director of operations and ecosystem development for mobility solutions. “We also see in the data a growing acceptance of personal devices in the workplace, which signals that the appropriate security tools and protocols are in place. Nearly 60 percent of respondents said they use a personal tablet at work.”

The total sample size equates to a margin of error of ±3.9% at a 95% confidence level.
