With the health care market continuing to take advantage of business intelligence (BI) tools, there is a continuing interest in the market for the development of mobile BI tools for executives on the go.

Just as we have seen how smartphones and tablets keep health care leaders connected to their emails, social media sites and colleagues, we are starting to see more and more demand for mobile dashboards.  Having access to the different hospital scorecards and KPIs (key performance indicators) is helping executives react to changes and trends in real time, even when sitting in traffic or during their travel.

So far, there are many products available in the market that can plug and play into the current BI tools available in hospitals. Whether the organization is using Microsoft Analysis services, reporting services or SAP BusinessObjects, most of the new tools available on the iOS platform (iPhone/iPad) as well as the Android can easily integrate with those systems.

Some of the tools available in the market place are MicroStrategy Mobile for iPad, BIRT mobile and Roambi. Many of these products provide easy to use interfaces and allow for the internal IT team to customize the dashboards based on the end users preferences and job roles.
