4 - Up in the Air: Using the Airwatch Mobile Device Management Platform to Provide Access to Core Clinical Apps

Tuesday, May 30
3:50 PM - 4:05 PM
Room: 613

Objectives: To describe a partnership between the library, health system IT, and clinical administrators to utilize an existing health system mobile device management to increase utilization of subscription apps by medical students and clinicians in a large academic health setting.

Methods: Academic and hospital libraries and individual clinical departments are often the primary suppliers of access to subscription-based clinical health and medical resources within their institutions. Other frequently used resources are freely available to all users. This confusing information landscape is further muddied when considering access to the mobile versions of these subscription and free resources. Differences in access levels, registration procedures, and mobile device platforms can serve as barriers to medical student and clinician adoption and use of available mobile resources. This paper will describe how a team of librarians, clinicians, and health system IT personnel developed and deployed a collection of free and subscription mobile applications to enrollees in a health system mobile device management platform, the challenges that arose throughout the project, and the effect on access to and utilization of the applications by medical students and clinicians.
