Abstract

Clinical Informaticians have been considerably effective at replacing paper-based medical data with healthcare applications. Presently, the theme of interest for biomedical IT systems comprises of Web based and wireless healthcare provisions. To explore into this area of research, we begin by familiarizing the audience with the theme of healthcare applications in Section 1. This is followed by listing and discussing the advantages provided by generic computerized systems developed primarily for the assistance of physicians in Section 2.1. In Section 2.2, we consider possible challenges that these applications induce. Section 3.1 comprises of the possible benefits offered by Web-based applications for clinicians, whereas Section 3.2 focuses on the challenges offered by Web-based applications. Section 4.1 delivers an overview on the subject of wireless healthcare technology in regard to physicians whereas Section 4.2 lists and defines its benefits in detail. Section 4.3 gives a brief coverage to wireless healthcare devices that could be of significance to clinicians. Furthermore, Section 4.4 consists of a clarified consideration of wireless applications that currently provide assistance to certified physicians, followed by Section 4.5, focusing on its challenges. We conclude this chapter in Section 5, providing an insight of how the future of generic, Web-based, and wireless technologies could lead to added development in our lives as clinicians or patients.
