Mobile Carts Selection – Computer on Wheels (COW) or Workstation on Wheels (WOW)

I have researched the criteria for selecting a Mobile Cart for Hospitals and Healthcare Systems. I have polled our local clienbts and posted questions to HIMSS too. This is the results of my findings.

My questions were: What is the criteria in selecting a Mobile Cart or RX Cart? Who drives the decision? Who has input on the decision?

The nursing staff should express their needs/feedback about Mobile Carts through representatives. The IT Departments needs to provide input as to supporting a device on the network and Biomed department gets involved (in some cases) in supporting the batteries. Now becoming more mainstream, some institutions are on their 2nd or 3rd generation of carts. History of using these carts creates a wish list for future purchases, to make the staff’s jobs easier.

Allow me to add the following:
Easy to Push
Small Footprint
Appropriate Screen Size
Easy Plug In / Battery Swap
Battery Gauge
Compatiblle with Software and Wireless NW
Back Lit Keyboard
Ergonomic Keyboard Tray
ISO and UL Compliant
Microban Covered
Keyboard Skin
Medication Drawer options
Easily Upgraded
Many Options Available
Great reseller support
