The innovative InfoLogix M24 mobile clinical assistant is the missing link between busy clinicians who are always on the move and the valuable patient data that resides in hospital information systems. With the InfoLogix M24, medical professionals can easily input vital information, access a patient's Electronic Medical Record (EMR), verify a patient's correct medication and dosage, and view and capture diagnostic medical images, all directly at the bedside through an ergonomically-designed mobile device.
The InfoLogix M24 is built upon the Intel mobile clinical assistant reference architecture, which is designed specifically for health care and the rigors of the clinical environment, including integrated technologies that support the "five rights" of medication administration and provide more streamlined and efficient work flows.
Additionally, the InfoLogix M24 features an array of cutting-edge technologies such as a bar code scanner, a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) reader, a fingerprint reader, a webcam, and a microphone array. These innovative tools enable hospital staff to access valuable patient data quickly and easily which can help reduce the number of errors and allow clinicians to spend more quality time with patients.
"Given that one of the nation's top priorities is reducing health care costs by eliminating inefficiencies, we believe new technology is a key ingredient necessary to achieve this important goal", noted David Gulian, President and CEO of InfoLogix. "The InfoLogix M24 mobile clinical assistant is a critical piece of the puzzle for hospitals that are looking to provide higher quality patient care while at the same time reducing the cost of care. It's an affordable solution that allows medical professionals to have comprehensive patient information at their fingertips, delivered through a lightweight, portable and ergonomically-designed device."
"In partnership with clinicians worldwide, the Mobile Clinical Assistant platform is revolutionizing the way that hospitals are delivering care to their patients, by enabling more informed and immediate decisions at the point of care, helping to reduce medication administration errors, and easing workloads", stated Louis Burns, vice president and general manager of Intel's Digital Health Group. "By serving over 1500 hospitals across North America with mobility solutions, InfoLogix has a unique understanding of how mobility challenges affect health care organisations, and we're pleased that InfoLogix chose to base the new InfoLogix M24 on the MCA reference design."
