Have Your Say: The First National Clinical Software Usability Survey

March 2016

A clinical system is more than just recording somewhere what we do. It is a medico-legal document. It holds our patient’s medical records and it provides us with the information we need to help shape our clinical assessments and interventions.

#SoMe & Healthcare Professionals

For many organisations the drive to introduce mobile devices is based solely on cost improvement objectives.
