St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) March 1, 2006
EnovateIT, sourcing and integration expert for mobile healthcare computing applications, is partnering with Ergotron, the global leader in computing and visual display mounting equipment, to deliver StyleView™ Carts to the point-of-care. EnovateIT will enhance the StyleView solution with a Welch Allyn Vital Signs monitoring system for bedside patient diagnostics.
The vital signs monitoring system will attach to the back of Ergotron’s StyleView Carts, creating one workstation with multiple efficiencies for ultimate patient care. This solution will enable healthcare professionals to bring full diagnostics to the patient bedside while eliminating the need for a separate cart. Additionally, combining a vital sign monitoring system with the open architecture of the StyleView Cart further reduces the total cost of ownership. The integrated cart, provided by EnovateIT, will be the first cart to bring a vital signs monitoring system to the point-of-care with the ability to support future hardware upgrades.
“Our customers need integrated solutions -- improving efficiency and productivity of their clinicians, and greatly minimizing costly and serious data entry errors through electronic medical record (EMR) technology. It was a logical decision to marry the leading point-of-care cart, Ergotron’s StyleView, with the market leading vital signs monitors from Welch Allyn,” said Ron Sgro, President and Co-Founder of EnovateIT. “This compelling solution offers an open architecture technology choice previously unavailable in the market.”
Ergonomically designed with input from nurses and healthcare IT professionals, Ergotron’s line of StyleView Carts bring Constant Force (CF™) patented motion technology to healthcare mobile computing. CF technology provides smooth one-touch vertical motion. Nurses, doctors or other healthcare workers can adjust the StyleView workstation 20 inches straight up and down, ensuring comfortable, ergonomic data entry whether sitting or standing. The cart’s small 18" x 18" footprint allows users to fit a complete system in space-constrained areas.
“EnovateIT acknowledges the value in what Ergotron does for point-of-care in healthcare facilities” stated Steve Reinecke, Director of Healthcare for Ergotron. “Our strong relationship will have a positive impact on the healthcare industry now and as point-of-care technology requirements change in the future.”
In addition to the StyleView, EnovateIT will continue to sell Ergotron’s disruptively priced wall mounts and desk stands to enhance computing throughout healthcare facilities.
