“Finally, an EMR designed to make me the best I can be.”
Based on Motion Computing’s C5v Windows® Tablet PC, AnesthesiaEMR™ makes point-of-care, mobile data entry a reality by virtualizing existing paper forms while integrating real-time business intelligence. AnesthesiaEMR™ makes clinical documentation incredibly simple and intuitive so that the providers remain focused on providing outstanding patient care, undistracted from “computer” data entry. Specifically designed by anesthesiologists for the mobile way anesthesiologist actually work, AnesthesiaEMR™ was developed to ultimately give doctors, hospitals, and patients the data they need to get better.
In fact, one of the primary reasons the Motion C5-series tablet was chosen as the hardware platform for the Graphium Health Anesthesia EMR solution was its durability and ability to be disinfected. The devices are used in a very mobile workflow where the potential for drops and bumps is always present. The ability to quickly disinfect the device with standard cleansers already being used in the field made the product a great, cost-efficient fit.
The ergonomic form factor and functionality of the Motion C5v were also key contributors to the selection process. The comfort of the handle paired with the convenience of the digitizer stylus and barcode reader made the device a perfect replacement for the paper forms historically used for charting. The software is designed to closely resemble the documents that users are accustomed to, and having a device that can emulate a clipboard and paper entry method minimized the training requirements. The integrated barcode scanner also allows for the quick capture of patient data, further increasing efficiency and accuracy when inputting data and raising the productivity level of the users.
These unique healthcare-sensitive features, combined with the ease of compatibility with backend business intelligence systems were stand-out factors in the selection of the Motion C5v platform. The fact that the device runs the full Windows® Pro operating system makes its integration with other pieces of the AnesthesiaEMR solution quick and easy, ultimately elevating the power and lowering the cost of the entire solution to incomparable levels.
