Panasonic Computer Solutions Company has launched its Toughbook H1, a mobile clinical assistant to integrate the low power Intel Atom processor.
According to Panasonic, the new Toughbook H1 redefines performance and functionality for the mobile clinical assistant (MCA) category with six hour battery life, dual hot-swappable batteries, standard daylight viewable screen and integrated Gobi technology in a sealed and easily-sanitized package.
The Toughbook H1 is based on Panasonic’s engineering, resulting from its own proprietary global healthcare industry research and Intel’s MCA reference design. The resulting device improves workflow and eases clinical loads for doctors and nurses, allowing them to access patient records at the point of care and document a patient’s condition in real time.
The workflow advantages offered by the H1 is expected to help healthcare organizations maximize efficiency, which is critical as the market faces an aging population, increased demand for healthcare services and a shortage of nurses, said Panasonic.
The Toughbook H1 MCA can help to reduce medication administration errors. With integrated RFID reader, 2.0 megapixel auto-focus camera with dual LED lights, a barcode reader, contactless smart card reader and fingerprint readers, the new Toughbook H1 MCA is a secure and intuitive platform for barcode medication administration, vitals capture and electronic medical records capture and review, added Panasonic.
