Inpect at the Start of the Shift

 

Charged up
Computer up
Scanner working
Badge Reader working and Log In
Check Connectivity
Wipe all surfaces down (sani-wipe) worksurface, handles, keyboard,

keyboard tray, mouse, mouse pad area, barcode scanner

Wipe down Monitor Exterior (Note: Never wipe monitor screen with

Sani Wipe or Alcohol Wipes…use water on Microfiber cloth)

Check your Supplies

 

Common Supplies – Fill what is needed, excess supplies add more weight   

making your Cart harder to push

Special Supplies – Add what is needed
Instruments  – Add what is needed for the shift

 Doctor with Dual Screen Access

During the Shift

 

Plug in to top off battery when cart is not in use – even for 5 minutes extends 

run time

Wipe down the cart after leaving each room
Keep cart out of main traffic areas in hallways
Watch where you are going with cart – adjust monitor to provide clear view 

of your intended direction

Be Careful with cart going over thresholds into carpeted area or returning

to hard surface flooring

Be very careful when entering and exiting elevators – some do not always

align correctly with the floor

Turn off display or go to main screen when leaving Cart for long period

of time

Face and engage patient / Family when Charting to increase Patient

Experience

Rendered NGPOC

Issues

 

Try to resolve – sometimes a simple reboot works, plug the Cart in
Ask a co-worker for quick help
Report immediately to IT (open a Ticket)
Connectivity or Signal Drops – report to IT

Mobile Carts & Meaningful Use

December 27, 2016

accesspoint-rxmd-barcode-scanningMobile Carts and Meaningful Use go hand in hand to help improve Patient Outcomes. Meaningful Use is the defined by the CDC as follows:

Meaningful Use is defined by the use of certified EHR technology in a meaningful manner (for example electronic prescribing); ensuring that the certified EHR technology is connected in a manner that provides for the electronic exchange of health information to improve the quality of care; and that in using certified EHR technology the provider must submit to the Secretary of Health & Human Services (HHS) information on quality of care and other measures.

https://www.cdc.gov/ehrmeaningfuluse/introduction.html  

Mobile Carts are the necessary tools to capture and share patient data in any Clinic, Practice or Health System to improve Patient Outcomes. They are designed to house or carry the devices that reside on the secure network to deliver patient charts, enter data and order procedures or meds.accesspoint-rx-md-brochure_002-5

Again, from the CDC website, we see the 5 Pillars of Health Outcomes Policy Priorities. These are:

  1. Improving quality, safety, efficiency, and reducing health disparities
  2. Engage patients and families in their health
  3. Improve care coordination
  4. Improve population and public health
  5. Ensure adequate privacy and security protection for personal health information

rm-rxf9drawer3As we go into 2017, more criteria are measured to achieve Stage 3 of Meaningful Use. Incentives are there for those who comply but conversely, negative adjustments to reimbursements will apply to those who do not.

In gearing up for Stage 3, we will see many Mobile Carts being sold, configured and delivered all over the USA. Each of these will have a specific task for the caregivers in their area.  Often thought of as something bought from a catalog, we know they are not and each Mobile Cart should be configured to give you the most efficiency.  One size does not fit all.

Mobile Cart Batteries – Performance and Life

March 31, 2015

The Power System and Battery technology is vital to the efficiency of your Healthcare process using any Computer on Wheels.  Having to plug in because the current battery only lasts 4 hours per shift can slow the daily process.  In today’s Healthcare System, the process is fast, effective and designed to reduce errors.  That requires good tools – Computer on Wheels with great Power Systems and Batteries.  That is exactly why Metro is the leader in Battery Life with their Mobile Cart line.

lightning-bolt-hi[1]

How long will the battery last each day?  Will it last a full shift?

The batteries on your Computer on Wheels should last a full shift or better.  With partial charging during breaks or lunch, the cart will stay topped off all day.  Metro Batteries last 12+ hours on a full charge.  

How long will the battery last before replacement?

Lithium batteries are like the batteries your laptop uses.  Metro offers two Lithium Battery solutions….a Mid-Grade (to compete with other manufacturers) and a High-Grade.  The Metro Mid-Grade Lithium will last 2500 cycles before having to be replaced.  The Metro High-Grade Lithium Nano (LiNano) is rated for 5000 cycles and in testing, surpassed AccessPoint Battery Replacement10,000 cycles.  That is 8 to 10 years before your Health System has to replace these batteries from Metro.  Longer Shift Life and Longer Battery Life is the best solution for your environment.

Sure, other manufacturers have Lithium Batteries in their Mobile Carts, however, their Lithium technology is the same as the Metro Mid-Grade Lithium.   Mid-Grade batteries have to be replaced at 2500 cycles which is a costly expense a few years down the road.  Why would you settle for mid-grade when LiNano from Metro is available now?  LiNano is definitely superior in life span and costs much less in the long run.

No one but Metro has the HIGH-GRADE LiNano Battery proven with over 5000 cycles!

How long to recharge?

The Power System in Metro Computer on Wheels charges fully in two hours. We know that in some Heathcare Environments a fanless option is needed, the OR, for example. Our Power System is switchable to fanless and the charge time is increased to 3 hours in those cases.

Metro LogoA Little History about Metro:  they are owned by Emerson…the world class company we all know.  In fact, they also own Liebert, the Information Technology Data Center large scale Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) and Power Distribution Unit (PDU) manufacturer/provider.  Emerson brings the Liebert power knowledge to Metro. With Liebert know how, software and technology behind your Computer on Wheels battery, why would you choose anything else?
