Intel today announced the mobile clinical assistant (MCA) is ready to enable nurses to spend more time with patients and do their jobs on the move while remaining connected.
Motion Computing's C5 is the first product based on Intel's MCA platform and has earned support from clinicians and nurses participating in pilot studies around the world.
The lightweight and easily disinfected MCA allows nurses to access up-to-the-minute patient records and to document a patient's condition instantly.
Some of the Motion C5 features include: wireless connectivity to access up-to-date secure patient information and physician's orders; radio frequency identification (RFID) technology for rapid user logon; a digital camera to enhance patient charting and progress notes, to keep track of wounds as they heal; and bluetooth technology to help capture patient vital signs.
As part of the solution, Intel and Motion Computing worked closely with electronic medical record (EMR) and other clinical software companies to refine their applications for use on MCA.
