I've written about some of the perils of using consumer devices on hospital networks .
Now add to that risk, the distraction of mixing personal activities with patient treatment.
Blogs are filling with debates about patient safety in a multitasking connected world.
Even the New York Times has published an article about the possible negative consequences of mobile devices.
In that context, AHRQ asked me to write a balanced commentary looking at the quality, safety, and efficiency pros and cons of using multitasking mobile devices for healthcare.
I hope you enjoy it and draw your own conclusions about how these devices are best used in your hospital of professional office setting.
