Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) with FLO is Lowest in Mobile Computing

January 25, 2013

The TCO for Flo Mobile Workstations, the Flo 1760 and Flo 1760RX, is the lowest for your Health System. This true for a few reasons:

1. Flo Battery Technology is Superior – They simply outlast all others in daily use duration and overall life of the batteries. (The technology for batteries comes from parent company owning Liebert.)

2. No hidden costs – Flo Mobile Workstations come out of the box Fully Assembled. (nothing to put together or buy…in other words no extra expense and no hidden IT costs for assembly)

3. Flo now has Budget Minded Power Systems – The new Power Systems simply lets you swap batteries for an upgrade later, if your budget today is tight.

Flo Heathcare is a division of Metro, a subsidiary of Emerson Electric Corporation. Everyone has heard of Emerson as they are a Fortune 100 company. They are very well known within the Information Services field with Data Center Power solutions.
See more about Emerson here: http://www.emerson.com/en-US/Pages/Default.aspx

Why wouldn’t you trust them with the BEST BATTERY SOLUTION for COWs or WOWs? If an IT Help Desk virtually eliminates Battery Problems from their FLO WOW fleet, Trouble Tickets will be reduced 60% or more!

The Flo Healthcare Li-Nano Battery Solution is rated for 8000+ cycles…twice that of Rubbermaid cart Li Batteries! That is a 7 1/2 year life using the cart 365 days a year on all 3 shifts. It comes with a 3 year warranty too. This almost eliminates power related problems and removes them from Information Services Support for 5 years or longer. Other manufacturer’s COWs may be less expensive up front but having to replace batteries twice as often clearly makes Flo Healthcare the clear cut winner in TCO with Point of Care carts! You would be replacing batteries with the Rubbermaid COW before the 3 year warranty runs out on the Flo LiNano!

Point-of-Care for Healthcare … Entering 2013

December 4, 2012

Point-of-Care is where the rubber meets the road in Healthcare. As we move closer and closer to a EMR world, the data capture and data sharing devices are the key. There are different schools of thought on how to outfit a Health System with the right devices. Some choose either COWs, Tablets or Wall Arms. I think that all 3 have their place in today’s Health System.

Healthcare Room Setting

We know this can be done by 3 device families:

Mobile Carts – Computer on Wheels (COWs) or Workstation on Wheels (WOWs)

Tablets or other Handheld Wireless devices

Wall Arms or Wall Cabinets housing Computers

MetroMount Articulating Arm 7

ASR is your best source for Flo Healthcare and Lionville Mobile Carts. Also, contact us for our MetroMount Wall Arms…both medium duty and heavy duty (holds 40#)

Don’t forget we supply batteries for the Flo 1750 and Flo 1760 at great prices…and with a 16 month warranty too!

Computer on Wheels (COWs) or Workstation on Wheels (WOWs) Keep Rolling

August 21, 2012

COWs, as I call them, are essential tools of every health system. The carts from Flo are rock solid, in fact, we are currently upgrading the technology in 5 year old Flo 1750 carts. With a new Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, Mouse Cradle, Scanner Holder and HP 8200, an old 1750 cart is almost new again. Once our techs clean, sanitize, service and inspect the cart as the final step, IT IS NEW AGAIN.

The nursing staff is pleased, the IT staff is pleased and the ROI on that cart pleases the Health System Administrators.

The newer generation carts, the Flo 1760s should be ready for upgrades now too.


Oh, by adding the Washable keyboards and mice from Seal Shield with built-in Anti-Microbial, this is a benefit toward Infection Control.

See my previous blog about Infection Control here: https://asr4u.wordpress.com/2012/05/05/point-of-care-and-microban-cows-or-wows-need-a-microban-keyboard-mouse/

COWs and WOWs – Cleaning and Disinfecting – Part of Periodic Maintenance and Infection Control

April 13, 2012

COW maintenance should include routine cleaning and disinfection processes. In all the the Health Systems I visit, I see COWs in many degrees of condition. Some are visibly clean while others are covered with tape, stickers and just plain dirty. I believe that a COW should look clean and actually be clean to prevent the spread of disease. Also, a COW that is clean also looks better to patients, their family, their friends and hospital staff. ASR offers detailed cleaning and disinfecting services for COWs and WOWs. This service should be performed a minimum of twice each year. One client wants this done quarterly on his fleet of COWs.


Here is a bit I have put together to share about Cleaning and Disinfection of COWs:

Cleaning, Disinfection, and Sterilization: Point of Care Equipment

All Point of Care equipment including Computer on Wheels (COWs) or Workstation on Wheels (WOWs) and Wall Arms are essential to the care of patients. Because they typically are designed for high use, they also can transmit pathogens if any of the steps involved in reprocessing (Cleaning, Disinfection, or Sterilization) are inadequate or experience failures. Because the majority of pathogens are present in organic matter, e.g. visible soil, the first step in reprocessing, Cleaning is the most important. Any failure to remove soil at this point creates the potential for transmission of infection as the efficacy of subsequent disinfection or sterilization will be compromised.

Every hospital or healthcare facility should have an Infection Control Policy in place and include Point of Care equipment. An Infection Control Policy should be built around:

Cleaning Disinfection Sterilization

Cleaning: This process usually involves detergent or enzymatic presoak that removes foreign material (e.g. dirt or microorganisms) from an object. Cleaning is the most essential step in reprocessing instruments and equipment. Cleaning involves the removal of all foreign material (dirt and organic matter) from the object being reprocessed. Two key components of cleaning are friction to remove foreign matter and fluids to remove or rinse away contamination. This is especially true for manual cleaning of COWs or WOWs, which removes most organisms from a surface. Cleaning is normally accomplished by the use of water or detergents and mechanical actions. Detergent is essential to dissolve proteins and oil that can reside on equipment after use. Detergents lower surface tension and lift dirt or oil away from the device. Studies have shown that thorough cleaning alone can provide a 10,000 fold reduction in contaminants.

Disinfection: Any process, chemical or physical, that destroys pathogens that deems an item is safe to handle for its use. A disinfectant is a chemical agent that destroys most pathogens but may not kill bacterial spores. Chemical disinfection should only be used if heat treatment is impractical or if it may cause damage to the equipment. There is a broad spectrum of chemical disinfectants that have different antimicrobial activities. Most of them do not necessarily kill all microorganisms or spores that are present on an inanimate object but instead reduce the number of microorganisms to a level that is not harmful to health.

Sterilization: Uses an agent that destroys all viable forms of microbial life on any surface. Sterilization methods remove or destroy all forms of microbial life including bacterial spores by either physical or chemical processes. Sterilization is accomplished principally by steam under pressure, by dry heat, and by chemical sterilants. (Because of their size and the electronic components in COWs or WOWs, Sterilization is not a viable option).

Risks of Infection from Equipment

The risks of infection from equipment may be classified into three categories. COWs and WOWs fall into the Low Risk category. These are noncritical items are items that come into contact with normal and intact skin or with the inanimate environment (e.g. walls, floors, ceilings, furniture, sinks, etc.). Cleaning with a detergent and drying is more than adequate. A simple wipe down with an alcohol based disinfectant wipe or once over with a Hospital Grade Disinfectant Spray by the staff before each shift is even better. These processes are essential for every COW and WOW and should be included in your Infection Control Policy.

COWs and WOWs – Maintaining Mobile Carts in your Health System

March 27, 2012

Today’s Topics: Batteries and Regular Maintenance

Being from the IT world since 1985, I like to call them COWs (Computer on Wheels). That being said, let me say this:
COWs NEED REGULAR MAINTENANCE.
Of course, you know when your batteries are on their last leg or when the cart is not hitting the network, this should

    not

be your only time to touch a COW.

Batteries: a Quick Lesson
SLA – Sealed Lead Acid – lasts about a year
NiMH – Nickle Metal Hydride – lasts about 2 years
LIon – Lithium Ion – lasts about 4+ years

Batteries plague every Health System that has COWs. THe best option here is to buy LIon from the beginning or upgrade to them now. THis takes the charging and short battery life out of your COW support equation. (excellent ROI)

COWs get dirty, full of stickers, tape and all kinds of dried fluid. They also carry bacteria. You have to ask yourself, “How does this look to patients, their family and friends and hospital staff?” I would think this is not a good representation of your facility.

Regular Maintenance / Preventative Maintenance
COWs need maintenance on a regular basis. I would recommend once per year at worst case. This would entail, thorough cleaning, sterilizing, vaccuuming, cleaning off stickers and tape, testing all equipment, tightening everything and replacing broken components. A better approach is to perform this twice a year.

For the sake of the investment made in the cart, Preventative Maintenance can go a long way for your Return on Investment (ROI) and Infection Control.

November 10, 2011

ASR is a reseller for the Flo Healthcare Mobile Cart line. These carts are bullet-proof and should last a good 10 years. Talk about a ROI on these necessary devices. The only downside is the technology inside and the battery life.

ASR is currently installing new technology into some 1750 carts that are about 5 years old. The wireless capabilities and processors of the technology today far exceed those of yesteryear. We refresh the monitor, keyboard and mouse. This makes these carts current without having to purchase a new one.

ASR can literally save you a thousands! Let’s keep your old carts rolling with ASR.
