Abstract: One after another more and more e-''somethings'' are constantly appearing. The newest sensation though, is not an e-''something'' rather the mobile Internet, m-commerce or the mobile version of e-commerce. Mobile commerce is now being embraced across most industries to a greater or lesser extent. In fact, its impact is being felt in the healthcare industry. Our paper serves to outline the benefits of adopting mobile commerce within the healthcare industry. In particular, it discusses an appropriate mobile solution to enable hospitals operate effectively and efficiently in today's competitive and costly healthcare environment as well as meet the necessary regulatory requirements.
