Solving Communications Challenges in the Hospital with the Right Technology
 
In hospital operations, accurate and timely communication is imperative, and technology has long played a significant role in streamlining this effort. Until recently, this technology has been cumbersome and at times unreliable. New tablet PCs, however, are streamlining communications and operations in the medical field, enabling real-time data transfer and making it more accessible – particularly important in emergency medical scenarios.

1. Emergency Medical Responder and Dispatcher – Real Time Solutions
In emergency situations, when patients are being transferred to the hospital, every step requires precise decision making and timing. Traditionally, magnetic status boards have been used to communicate patient status. This, however, only made information accessible to a few staff members and required constant updating. Winmate’s M970D rugged tablet PC eliminates the need for these boards, enabling reliable and streamlined communication between the main control room and medical staff.

The integrated GPS allows efficient tracking and dispatching of ambulances, as well as real-time communication and data transfer between drivers and Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs), improving ambulance operational efficiencies and patient safety. The detailed route information also allows the driver to focus on the road instead of administrative or manual tasks.

Winmate's M970D is an all-in-one device, which means the same device may be used to facilitate communications between the ambulance driver, EMD, and designated hospital. The Intel Atom-powered rugged tablet can be securely mounted inside an ambulance with a customized vehicle dock, and swiftly dismounted upon arrival at the hospital. This allows for seamless transfer of patient information, making the transition period quicker and smoother.
 
2. Advance Room Management Solutions
Winmate's multi-touch panel PCs go beyond that of the standard industrial panel computers with elegant, edge-to-edge design, rugged construction, powerful performance, and flexible mounting options. Whether used for hospital automation, point of information, access control, or patient room management, our advanced multi-touch panel PCs, enables rapid and reliable communications, efficient operations and increased security.

Winmate's multi-touch panel PCs may be easily installed at multiple locations such as waiting rooms, hospital halls or nurse stations to streamline room management and organize hospital information. This reliable, 24/7, integrated system connects to a centralized database to provide real-time status updates patients and/or rooms.
 

3. Recovery Room Solutions- Patient Infotainment

Standard consumer tablets are not designed to survive the hospital environment. To make the medical staff's assignments easier and more productive, a device must be light enough to be mounted anywhere, feature a touch screen with a large, easily viewable display, and include all the required peripherals (RFID or Barcode) to capture and track patient data.

The M185D with Intel Atom N2600's Dual Core processor is a state-of-the-art industrial panel PC high resolution, a multi-touch screen, and extended battery life via the add-on battery, which helps prevent against possible data loss or system damage from sudden loss of power. The M185D features a compact design weighing less than 4.5 kilograms and just 35mm thick, which means it may be mounted just about anywhere. This tablet is ideal for the hospital and healthcare environments, with features like a fanless design, an IP65 front panel sealing, built-in smartcard reader, which protects data from being compromised by unauthorized users, and an optional barcode or RFID reader, and 2 MP camera to speed up medical staffs' daily work.
 
4. Recovery Room Solutions- Medical Record Management

With hot swappable batteries, medical professionals are ensured continuous, reliable power while on the go. Advanced communications options such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional 3G/4G/LTE, enable records to be updated in real time.
