I recently saw the following healthcare enterprise mobility framework shared with me on Twitter by Clinic Spectrum.
While the image gives some interesting stats and the breadth of what an organization needs to do to really adopt mobile in their organization, I was struck by something else. In the bottom left it shows which organizations are “actively adopting mobility.” It’s quite the list of industries. However, I think you could put just about any industry there, no? Am I wrong? Is there an industry that’s not actively adopting mobile? It’s got to be a pretty niche industry (can you call it an industry if it’s so niche?) if it’s not adopting mobile.
Those in healthcare might also laugh about healthcare being listed as an industry that’s actively adopting mobility. There is a lot of mobile use in certain areas of healthcare, but in a lot of areas it’s still very immature.
Most important, this graphic is a reminder about the importance of mobility. Which reminds me, I need to finish working on the mobile optimized version of this website. We’ll be rolling that out soon.
