Shared smart devices are devices used by multiple care team members—mainly nurses but also some hospitalists and therapists—within the walls of the hospital. These devices are increasingly popular in healthcare as a means of improving communication and potentially consolidating the nurse toolbelt. In this high-level update to KLAS’ 2018 clinical mobility report, KLAS spoke to organizations using the latest devices from Apple, Vocera, or Zebra (about 10 customers per device). Have new models addressed older versions’ challenges with connectivity, call quality, durability, and battery life? Which devices best meet customer needs? Do Apple and Zebra continue with high mindshare, and what (if any) adoption have Ascom, Samsung, or Spectralink generated? Where does Vocera fit in the market landscape?
