Metro, a world leading provider of technology, storage and transport solutions for healthcare facilities, today premiered its next generation Li-Nano (Lithium-iron Nano-phosphate) power system along with the newest version of their intelligent management and monitoring system, MetroMonitor™ Dashboard System version 2.1. These new innovations are the latest point-of-care computing advancements being introduced at the Metro booth (#1329) during the HIMSS (Healthcare Information Management System Society) Annual Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“As hospitals adopt and expand mobile computing strategies, we understand how critical uptime is to keeping caregivers efficient and a facility running smoothly,” said Rob Sobie, vice president of healthcare marketing at Metro. “Our new power systems, including our market-leading Li-Nano power option, are designed to provide the longest runtimes, rapid recharging and robust, worry-free performance.”

With this introduction, Metro expands its power system suite with options to accommodate the technology, budget and workflow of departments and facilities of all sizes. The Li-Nano power option provides runtimes up to 12 hours, an industry-leading 2 hour recharge time, and a long-lasting battery life of over 5,000 cycles. For facilities that require 24/7 uptime, Metro also offers a professional grade swappable power solution featuring lightweight Li-Ion batteries.

To further compliment its power portfolio, the latest version of the web-based, enterprise-wide MetroMonitor™ Dashboard System provides robust reporting, real-time text message updates, and other advanced features to optimize workstation performance, streamline fleet management and increase workstation uptime.

“The MetroMonitor Dashboard System allows our customers to proactively monitor the power systems and computing technology on their Metro Mobile Computing Workstations to support fleet readiness and reliability,” said Sobie. “The new alert management functionality and advanced reporting capabilities will support predictive maintenance and efficient fleet management for virtually any healthcare facility.”
