New Mobile Device Helps Hospital Staff Improve Patient Experience While Boosting Accuracy, Responsiveness
Fort Mill, S.C., Feb. 29, 2016 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today launched a new clinical mobile device that connects hospital staff to the digital resources they need to provide a safer and more satisfying patient experience.
The new Dolphin™ CT50h mobile computer from Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions is on display in Honeywell’s booth at the HIMSS16 Conference and Exhibition running February 29 to March 4, 2016, in Las Vegas. The device incorporates a barcode reader as well as the functionality and user experience of a smartphone to help hospital staff communicate, expedite admissions, simplify specimen collection and provide accurate medication administration.
By automating workflows and communications, Honeywell helps hospital staff become “connected clinicians” – significantly increasing productivity, responsiveness and safety to achieve greater patient satisfaction and enhancing hospital operations.
The Honeywell solution is based on the Dolphin CT50h mobile computer, a powerful AndroidTM device that features best-in-class imaging hardware and decoding software for fast and accurate barcode reading. With a touch-screen interface, the ergonomic handheld computer provides hospital staff with full access to patient data, medical device status, clinical alarm events and secure communications with the care team from anywhere in the hospital.
The Dolphin CT50h supports a host of third-party Android applications from leading electronic medical record, nurse communication, secure texting, alarm management and clinical support software providers. One integrated app is Epic Systems Corporation’s Epic Rover™ v4.2, which provides health care workers with access to digital tools.
Visitors to the Honeywell booth (number 3613) at the HIMSS16 conference will experience firsthand how the new handheld device, when paired with mobile apps, enhances workflows within the hospital. In addition, Honeywell will feature all of its latest health care mobile computers, barcode scanners and printer solutions that automate and enhance typical workflow processes within the hospital.
Sameer Agrawal, director, product marketing, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions: “We see increased adoption of mobile devices across the entire healthcare ecosystem. The Dolphin CT50h makes hospital staff ‘connected clinicians’ to free them from workstations-on-wheels or desktop computers. After studying nurse-patient interactions, we designed every aspect of this phone – from the size, weight and durability – to be focused on the user. With the ability to collect, access and analyze data without leaving the patient’s bedside, connected clinicians can achieve higher levels of productivity and accuracy while delivering a higher quality of care to their patients.”
