A new  Zebra Technologies study predicts that 97 percent of bedside nurses and 98 percent of physicians will use mobile devices in hospitals by 2022.

The Zebra researchers last year connected with 1,500 nursing managers, IT decision makers and recently hospitalized patients in the United States, Brazil, China, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar and United Kingdom.
