Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDAs) and Mobile Computers
Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDAs) and Mobile Computers. Frederiksberg Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in Copenhagen, Denmark, is using MC50 Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDAs) and PPT8846 mobile computers and the proprietary Mobility Services Platform (MSP) to securely capture, move and manage critical patient information for more accurate and timely medication administration. Using the new equipment, healthcare professionals at Frederiksberg Hospital can now scan the bar-code identification on a patient's wristband and review their medical history along with the correct medication and dosage to administer, greatly reducing the paper-based patient documentation that can be a source of medication and patient-care errors. "Hospitals need to do everything possible to reduce the potential for mistakes and to provide the maximum service to patients," said Jeppe Hansen, M.D., Consultant at Frederiksberg Hospital. "Symbol's solution helps us accomplish this, while also streamlining our everyday hospital procedures to allow nurses to spend more time with patients rather than on paperwork."With the MSP, Frederiksberg Hospital can also remotely manage, deploy and install new applications on the mobile computers and EDAs, thus saving time and operational costs. MSP provides the hospital with a scalable platform and a single point of control, allowing for easy management of the entire enterprise mobility solution.
