Zebra’s MC40-HC Now Available with Android KitKat 4.4.2

Posted August 6, 2015

Motorola MC40-HC Handheld ComputersZebra’s popular healthcare-ready MC40-HC mobile computer will soon be available with the robust Android KitKat 4.4.2 operating system. Get a true enterprise mobile experience on a rugged, user-friendly device with the updated MC40-HC.

In hospitals and clinics, mobile computers help nurses and lab technicians improve the quality of patient care and save lives by providing instant access to a wealth of business-critical information: real-time lab results, a change in a patient’s condition, or verification of the ‘5 rights’ of medication administration at a patient’s bedside. Mobility also helps healthcare organizations comply with government and health industry regulations, such as Stage 2 Meaningful Use and JCAHO, without tasking an already overburdened nursing staff and creating additional paperwork that would further reduce time spent caring for patients.

Healthcare staff members get the most benefit when they have the latest in mobile technology. A device that is as fun and easy to use as their own smartphone ensures regular use and integration into the existing working environment. An enterprise-class feature set, from data capture and security to manageability and dependably robust wireless connections, makes the MC40-HC an indispensable tool: Android, the most popular mobile operating system in the world; world-class enterprise data capture capabilities; and Extensions (Mx) from Zebra, which adds enterprise-required features that are missing from standard Android.

Honeywell Captuvo SL22 for Apple iPod Touch 5g Handheld ComputersSmartphones have transformed the way healthcare providers communicate, and these mobile devices are poised to revolutionize the way hospitals deliver care in 2014 and beyond.

Texting long ago surpassed voice calls as the favored method of communication among the general population, and it is rapidly gaining favor in hospitals. Doctors and nurses already exchange patient related texts on their own personal phones at many facilities, and as more hospitals issue mobile devices to employees, the ability to communicate quickly and access and update patient data on the move has become a critical function.

Deploying mobile, flexible, and reliable IT tools to caregivers is a top priority for provider organizations that not only need to meet new regulatory and technology requirements, but want to do so efficiently. At Cedars-Sinai Hospital in California, for example, the combination of smartphones and a new software solution to help prioritize alarms resulted in faster response times for emergency conditions, and a 50 percent reduction in overhead pages. Laboratory values are received 10 minutes faster and nurses are able to spend more time at the bedsides of patients who require their attention, according to a case study published by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
