MOBILE HEALTHCARE I.T
The health care of any Nation is one part that is taken seriously. This is because if not, the entire
nation would not even move forward on its day to day activities. It is also important to underline
the fact that the healthcare sector is one which plays a pivotal role in society.
To be fully functional and in the process fulfil its required duties, the healthcare sector has to be
supported by some factors. It is also these factors that determine the growth of the healthcare
sector and how it evolves. In its evolution, the healthcare sector has witnessed a lot of transitions,
and many of these have been spearheaded by technology (Machado, In Abelha, In Santos & In
This paper will aim to focus more on mobile healthcare information technologies. This is one
development that the healthcare sector has witnessed in the recent years, and this is because if
the fact that it has been spearheaded by technologies and therefore becoming one of the
brainchild developments that technology has brought into this sector.
While at it, this paper will aim to address and elaborate more on all the relevant optics relating to
mobile healthcare information technologies with the help of a theory that is relevant in its skin.
The theory that will help in shedding light on mobile healthcare information systems will be the
theory of Diffusion of Innovations.
What is Mobile Healthcare Information Technologies?
As it was mentioned earlier in the introduction, the healthcare sector, in both structure and
operations, has witnessed a lot of changes in the recent years and one of this is the mobile
healthcare system. In a simple explanation, Mobile Healthcare Information Technologies is the

incorporation of mobile technology, into how the traditional healthcare operations are conducted
with the sole aim of making everything easier.
How did it arise?
With the world being swept off its feet by the wave of technology, it was only a matter of time
before the healthcare sector got affected. This came in the form of mobile IT that is being
discussed in this paper. The entire world built itself around mobile technology, and this was
because of the fact that it offered a lot of conveniences.
Coupled with innovations, there came the idea of using the already popular mobile technology to
incorporate it do the normal activities that the average human being was using. As at the time of
the inception of this idea, mobile technology was being used to perform a number of basic
functions, and this included;
Communication-It was used to communicate, and as the time of the inception of mobile
healthcare information technology, this had become full-blown human reliability, and this
is why it even played a key role in this innovation from the moment it began to what it is
Banking-People had already trusted mobile technology to transact on their behalf. One of
the reasons that made it even more popular is the ease within which every complicated
thing was being done was commendable.
Entertainment-As at the time of conceiving the idea of using mobile IT in the healthcare
sector, there were many people who had found a way of entertaining themselves using
the same mobile IT. What this made sure is the fact that when healthcare could also get
on board, everything became even more convenient for them (Rajkumar, 2018).

Business- This is the main part and pillar that supported the idea of using mobile IT in the
healthcare sector, and this is because of the fact that it is this arm of operations that was
reciprocated in the healthcare sector.
Many people say that if mobile information technology could make the average business
happen, and do so in a very smooth and seamless manner, so could this be reflected in the
HealthCare sector. In the end, it played a key role in the innovation on the healthcare side
With these kinds of services being made easier by mobile technology, it was only a matter of
time and due to necessitation for mobile technology to come into the healthcare sector, which I
also another key element in the very existence if the human being.
This, in short, is the reason as to why and how the mobile information technology got away into
the healthcare sector and consequently ended up becoming a game-changer. The following
statement will be justified throughout this paper while at the same time making it as
comprehensive and relevant, as possible (Perego, Rahmani & TaheriNejad, 2018).
The reasons that led to the success of the idea of mobile information technologies, will be
explained in the later stages if this paper, but most importantly, it is worthy of underlining the
fact that all this can also be explained using the theory mentioned in the previous parts of this
paper and that was Rogers’s Diffusion of Innovation Theory.
How does mobile healthcare information technology work?
As it was explained earlier, this is the incorporation of mobile technology, into how the
traditional healthcare operations are conducted with the sole aim of making everything easier. It
is therefore impo...
