Motorola MC75A0-HC device ready for hospital apps
Motorola has unveiled a new push-to-talk mobile device to withstand the drops and spills of a hospital environment. The Motorola MC75A0-HC Rugged Healthcare Enterprise Digital Assistant (EDA) allows doctors and nurses to enter patient data at bedside in a hospital environment where despite their presence in large numbers, ordinary smartphone connections are difficult to maintain according to a recent study by the Spyglass Consulting Group.
The Motorola EDA device allows health care workers to access patient information, measure medication, access drug libraries, monitor a patient's vital signs and record the data using a full QWERTY keyboard. Health professionals will also use the unit to perform blood transfusions, collect lab specimens and order prescriptions.
For communication with other doctors in the facility, the Motorola EDA includes push-to-talk functionality using the Motorola TEAM Express voice client. It also integrates with nurse-call systems, voice over LAN and VOIP (voice over IP) networks, said Vivian Funkhouser, principal of global health care solutions at Motorola.
