With the comprehensive wireless internet, clinicians can now move throughout the unit with their carts and have secure wireless access wherever they go.
Troy, MI (PRWEB) March 27, 2007
Southern Ocean County Hospital (SOCH), a community healthcare leader, reinforced its ongoing commitment to superior performance by adopting electronic medication administration record (eMAR). To facilitate this critical technology adoption, the hospital worked closely with EnovateIT, the nation's leading healthcare IT integrator, to create a mobile EMAR solution for the point of care.
The complete solution -- comprised of a Rubbermaid Medical Solutions medication cart, laptop, and infection control keyboard / mouse -- helps clinicians on the medical / surgical floors more easily transition from the paper-based medication administration to the new Meditech electronic medication administration program. The med cart solution enhances clinical workflow and patient interaction, resulting in improved patient care and satisfaction.
An integral part of the solution is the Rubbermaid Medical Solutions medication transfer system. This expansion module system provides efficient, accurate medication transfer between the hospital's pharmacy and the medication carts on the nursing floors. Together, the transfer system and medication carts save clinicians valuable time and energy.
Michelle Green, Clinical Informatics Specialist, stated, "By utilizing the Rubbermaid carts our nurses are able to document clinical information at the patient's bedside. They have access to all of the patient's information and medication right there." According to Green, "With the comprehensive wireless internet, clinicians can now move throughout the unit with their carts and have secure wireless access wherever they go."
"We worked closely with the clinical informatics specialists at SOCH to come up with a complete solution tailored to their specific requirements," declared Doug Gallacher, EnovateIT regional sales manager. "With EnovateIT's integration service, all of these components were assembled on-site, and the finished devices were ready to roll out to the inpatient units." The integration service allowed the hospital IT staff to focus on a successful EMAR implementation.
EnovateIT will provide hands-on demonstrations of the Rubbermaid Medical Solutions medication cart at ANIA in Las Vegas, April 27-28 and at AACN, May 22-24, in Atlanta.
