    Purpose of the Mobile Program Model

    There is an increasing number of employees using smartphones, tablets and other mobile device in the workplace, so private firms and federal agencies are developing corporate mobility strategies and policies to support and sustain a mobile workforce. With this effort, we aim to model three different corporate mobility strategies to illustrate the resulting financial impact of a Federal workforce that has secure access to information and computing power anywhere at anytime.

    The Methodology Behind the Model

    • Inputs and assumptions used to develop this model were gathered from publically available research, namely Cisco IBSG, HiMSS and Forbes.
    • Cost savings for each department was based on productivity gains achieved by enterprises that have implemented mobile strategies, average salary for nurses and physicians and average number of beds at agency medical facilities.
    • Three scenarios were used to illustrate the time and cost savings associated with deployment of a department-wide mobile strategy that targets medical personnel (e.g., physicians, nurses, etc.). The three scenarios are as follows:
      • Mobile Deployment (agency-wide deployment of mobile devices)

      • Secure Services (SS) BYOD

      • Comprehensive BYOD

    Key Assumptions in the Model:

    General Mobile Deployment Secure Savings BYOD Comprehensive BYOD
    The ratio of physicians to nurses as provided by the DoD can be applied to the VA

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics salary information is accurate for DoD and VA healthcare providers

    All budgets were gathered from OMB FY2014 budget requests and are representative
    Costs associated with a tablet were gathered from VA iPad acquisition information and was kept constant for both departments

    All nurses and physicians would receive a tablet
    Tablets would replace all legacy hardware

    Additional information is needed regarding the cost of smartphone, laptop and other device deployment
    Secure services provides users access to a secure network using their personal mobile device

    The cost of the device and plan would not be covered by the enterprise

    The cost of tablets was not subtracted because it is negligible when associated IT overhead is factored in
    A comprehensive strategy assumes that all users would be required to use their own device and no legacy devices would remain in use

    This model is built off of the Secure Services model, assuming an additional $26 per person in cost savings

    Applications of the Model

    This model was developed for use within both the DoD and VA and is customizable to the needs of each enterprise. Outlined below are a few examples of applications for this model:

    1. Planning and development of a mobile strategy
    2. Comparison of different mobile strategies
    3. Customizable model for predective time and cost savings due to mobile and BYOD efforts
    4. Site-specific data for healthcare facilities around the country to determine which strategy is most suitable for their needs

    A Snapshot of the Model

    Figure 1: The image above illustrates cost and time savings achieved across six VA sites in the continental U.S. As reflected by the key in the lower left corner of the image, the sites are varied in size and location. This dashboard view provides a customizable tool to serve the needs of each agency and can be manipulated to compare any number of sites.
    Figure 2: The image above illustrates the potential mobile savings by mobile program as a portion of the estimated total healthcare IT budget for each agency. This information can be manipulated dependending on the size of each budget and can be constructed for specific healthcare facilities.
