Metro, a world leader in providing technology, storage and transport solutions for healthcare facilities, will be showcasing their newest point-of-care computing innovations, the Metro AccessPoint Mobile Computing Workstation and the Metro AccessPoint Rx MD Mobile Medication System, at the HIMSS14 Annual Conference and Exhibition. These all-new, next generation mobile computing solutions feature advanced ergonomic design, advanced medication management capabilities, and industry-leading configurability and integration to ensure long-term support for evolving technology demands.

Building on the company’s broad, industry-leading line-up of mobile workstations, Metro AccessPoint is the first product of the Metro Access™ platform, an integrated hardware and software suite of solutions that delivers unified information, medication and supply access.

“Metro AccessPoint offers the advanced technology, flexible integration options and fast fleet deployment that facilities are demanding to manage the rapid changes in healthcare IT and to meet the evolving meaningful use mandates,” said Rob Sobie, vice president of Metro Healthcare solutions. “As part of the Metro Access platform, our newest mobile computing workstation gives facilities a powerful tool for improving efficiency and reducing cost while progressing through the HIMSS EMR adoption model.”

Key features of the Metro AccessPoint Mobile Computing System include:

  •     Unique Lithium Iron Nanophosphate (Li-Nano) Power Supply with industry leading 5-year warranty.
  •     With the Advanced Metro Power System, future battery chemistry upgrades consist of a “battery cell only” replacement.
  •     New universal tech tray design accommodates technology from HP, Dell, Lenovo and more while expanding to accept laptops up to 17” for future upgrades.
  •     Designed from the ground up to meet the Cornell University Healthcare Cart Ergonomic Standards.

The new Metro AccessPoint Rx MD Mobile Medication System promotes secure medication management processes from the automated dispensing cabinet or pharmacy to the patient bedside. The system interfaces with the hospital's information system, eliminating wasteful and error-prone data entry. AccessPoint Rx MD's individual locking bins ensure that medications are organized and stored for accurate delivery.

“The demand for new efficiency and increased visibility throughout the entire medication management process continues to rise and we’re excited to help providers rethink this process with our advanced point-of-care innovation. The all new Metro AccessPoint Rx MD system integrates EHR and BCMA functionality, and secure medication storage, into a unified mobile workstation to enhance caregiver efficiency and improve overall clinician workflow,” added Sobie. “By solving the weaknesses of traditional medication workstations and legacy medication management processes, the Metro AccessPoint Rx MD enables sound medication delivery practices, increases security, and makes doing the right thing, the easiest thing.”

Key features of the AccessPoint Rx MD Mobile Medication System include:

  •     Individually locking bins provide secure patient specific medication storage for up to 12 patients.
  •     Populates patient-specific, individually-locking drawers using the HL7 ADT (Admission/Discharge/Transfer) transactional data from the HIS, promoting accuracy and security
  •     Web-based access to AccessPoint Rx MD console allows system management from virtually anywhere
  •     Centralized management of users’ rights and fleet access
