September 20, 2015

Hospital Pharmacists Love Metro RX Cart at GSHP 2013 Fall Conference

October 17, 2013

ASR attended the GSHP 2013 Fall Conference for Pharmacist Leaders in Georgia.

Metro Logo

They loved the Metro 1770RX and AccessPoint RX Mobile Carts for 3 reasons:

  • SINGLE BIN ACCESS – allows only one drawer to open thus reducing errors and increasing PATIENT SAFETY
  • MICROBAN – anti-microbial prevents spread of bacteria and HAI
  • TOUCHSCREEN to OPEN BINS – saves time with Log In and Opening Bins – THE ULTIMATE IN EFFICIENCY 

Held at the beautiful Brasstown Valley Resort in Young Harris, GA, this annual event is well attended by Healthcare System Pharmacists from all of Georgia . ASR showcased our full line of Mobile Carts, including the new…AccessPoint.  Break out sessions informed and covered many Pharmacy issues and concerns.  It was well planned, organized and smooth running…thanks to the GSHP!

GSHP Conf

 

ASR demonstrated many times, the Single Bin Access on the Metro 1770 RX Cart.  Metro is the only manufacturer that has that feature…one bin opens for one patient.  This Computer on Wheels with RX Module is cutting edge in today’s market.

 

Sharing the spotlight at the show was Win Platt, from our Metro Clinical Products Division, showing his many tools for organization and space-saving with the Pharmacy and Hospital.

September 27, 2013

ASR was a Featured Exhibitor at the GA HIMSS 2013.  Metro, our Point of Care line manufacturer, is a Diamond Sponsor of national HIMSS.  This was our 3rd year attending and the 8th GA HIMSS.

Metro Logo

The GA HIMSS was held at the World Congress Center in Downtown Atlanta. ASR showcased our our full line of Mobile Carts, including the new…AccessPoint.  This HIMSS Conference was very much like the national HIMSS.  Panel discussions covered many Healthcare IT subjects and problems associated with them.  It was well planned, organized and smooth…thanks to all of the GA HIMSS board!

It was great to meet our existing clients and to meet future ones as well. Attendees from all around Georgia attended gaining and sharing valuable knowledge to take back to their Health System.  We discussed ways our services and products could help their IT Departments could maximize use of Mobile Carts.  We offer Refresh Services, Upgrade Services and Annual Maintenance Agreements on fleets of Computer on Wheels.

ASR demonstrated many times, the Single Bin Access on the Metro 1770 RX Cart.  Metro is the only manufacturer that has that feature…one bin opens for one patient.

We again partnered with Lenovo at this conference.  We gave away another Lenovo m92p Tiny computer (valued at $740.00)  through a drawing from business cards dropped at our booth. We think the Lenovo m92p Tiny is the perfect computer for Mobile Computing. We had a Lenovo Twist, Helix, X1 Carbon and All-in-One with Touch Screen at the booth too!

Mobile Cart Selection – What should we consider for Computer on Wheels (COWs)?

May 14, 2013

  knows Computer on Wheels (COWs) or Workstation on Wheels (WOWs). We have researched the criteria for selecting a Mobile Cart for Hospitals and Health Systems. After polling our local clients and posting questions to HIMSS members through the message board, these are the results of our findings. 1760-iThe questions were:

  1. What is the criteria in selecting Computer on Wheels, Mobile Carts or RX Carts?
  2. Who drives the decision?
  3. Who has input on the decision?

The nursing staff should express their needs/feedback about Mobile Carts through representatives or Nurse Managers. 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 about FLO Computer on Wheels:

  • Easy to Push  – Little effort to push and maintain rolling
  • Small Footprint – Right sized for doorways and tight areas
  • Appropriate Screen Size – Today’s SW recommends larger screens..22″ or even 24″
  • Easy Plug In / Battery Swap – Batteries must be charged regularly
  • Easy to See Battery Gauge  – Should be right above Work Surface
  • Built in Foot Rest
  • Compatible with Software and Wireless NW  – Good reception
  • Back Lit Keyboard – For in-room visits at night
  • Lighted Worksurface – For tools and documents
  • Ergonomic Keyboard Tray – Reduces fatigue
  • ISO and UL 60601 Certified – No Electro Static Discharge within 6′ of COW (FLO is only one Certified)
  • Microban Covered Keyboard or Skin – Prevents spread of bacteria
  • Medication Drawer options – Customized to your needs
  • Easily Upgraded – Field upgraded
  • Many Options Available – Lights, holders, baskets, rails, etc.
  • Great reseller support – ASR is your partner

1760 Rx Mobile

Metro FLO Mobile Carts meet all of the criteria….plus having the Industry Leading Power Systems with batteries that can last a full shift and can be used for 10 years.
