Smartphones and Swine Flu
The potential swine flu epidemic has everyone scared. Everyone's talking about swine flu. There are interesting discussion on Sermo. It's almost like SARS all over again, but this time it's on our continent. It's not thousands of miles away in Asia. How will smartphones and other mobile devices impact how healthcare professionals communicate regarding outbreaks? My guess is that if this really turns into an epidemic, then it will be imperative for healthcare professionals to remain constantly connected via smartphones and other Internet-connected mobile devices.
