The healthcare enterprise worker is one of the most mobile of her peers across vertical industries. With the high degree of mobility inherent in the corridor-warrior and day-extender work styles of most healthcare professionals, IT must remain cognizant of where critical data is being stored and what’s at risk on top of providing 24x7 productivity. In its healthcare and life sciences respondent base alone, Forrester determined that 89% of healthcare organizations have some percentage of their employees working away from the office at least one day per week, while 87% of healthcare organizations have some percentage of workers telecommuting from home at least one day per week, and more than 50% have some segment of workers telecommuting at least four days per week. To support this mobile work style, 95% of these enterprises have users relying on smartphones for work, usually in addition to laptop computers.
