Via: medGadget - Motion C5: Mobile Clinical Assistant
Motion C5, the mobile clinical information management device by Intel and Motion Computing, initially reported by medGadget in September 2006, is no longer a rumor, or a prototype.
Intel says that it is starting to ship the device to hospitals around the world, to "enable nurses to spend more time with patients, do their jobs on the move while remaining connected, and manage the administration of medications."
Intel collaborated with Motion Computing - a long-time provider of mobility products in healthcare - to develop the first generation MCA product. Healthcare professionals now have access to a portable system that can record, retrieve, identify, verify, and document-all at the point of care.
A convergence of technologies allows to do everything one normally does during one's shift such as perform clinical documentation, administer medication and take pictures using a single device.
Weighing approximately 3 lbs., the C5 is made for mobile use.
