Heath Care & IT - Flo, Ergotron or Laptop Carts?

By ross.denney ·
It seems that Techs in Health Care are a breed of their own. I was hoping to make a collection of people that were in Health Care and see what their setup is. I work at a Meditech Hospital with Flocarts. We are to dead set in our ways to change anything. However I am curious to see how things could be better. Please Post your Health Care system and what your nurses use to chart.

If you don't get any immediate responses,

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Heath Care & IT - Flo, Er ...

you might want to bump this up next week. I suspect many IT professionals are on vacation today. Even those in the health care field are probably on call. Post a response to this thread next week and you may generate more activity.

Before I left...

by NotSoChiGuy In reply to Heath Care & IT - Flo, Er ... previous employer (a large healthcare system) had started rolling out two separate systems:

A thin client terminal on rolling carts (there were a few of these per ward for general diagnostic/record keeping use)

Tablets for specialists (imaging was a big need; I left before this was fully rolled out, though, so I can't speak to other purposes).

At the nursing stations, they were all using thin clients, as well. The organization had made the switch when a Joint Commission site survey turned up quite a bit of unsupported medical apps running on PCs that weren't password protected and contained EPI (whoopsy!).
