KDMC Optimizes Clinical Mobility for Greater Efficiency and Patient Care
King's Daughters Medical Center
To enhance mobility for its nursing staff, KDMC deployed Expanse Point of Care (POC) in conjunction with Zebra clinical mobile devices and Imprivata® Mobile Device Access (MDA). These two solutions are offered with the new MEDITECH-endorsed partnership between ACS MediHealth and Forward Advantage. Together, they provide the enhanced level of care that KDMC strives for with fast, secure access to mobile clinical data and more face-time between patients and caregivers. “We are very excited by the new partnership and the potential it brings to MEDITECH customers,” says David Dean, executive vice president at ACS MediHealth. “In conjunction with MEDITECH, we have heavily tested the Zebra device to ensure peak performance for our joint customers.”
Optimized Workflows with Single Sign-On
A MEDITECH-Endorsed Partnership Fast, Secure Access to Zebra Clinical Mobile Devices
The Zebra TC51-HC hand-held devices provide a mobile platform with which KDMC nurses can launch Expanse POC and perform many of their nursing duties from a patient’s bedside. They can even scan and administer medication using a built-in barcode scanner that has been described by Farr as “superior.” Perhaps most important to KDMC is that the Zebra devices come with a built-in proximity reader that allowed them to expand the single sign-on workflow their clinicians are accustomed to on a shared device. As an authorized reseller and implementer for Imprivata, Forward Advantage integrates Imprivata MDA for fast, secure access to the Zebra devices. “We felt very strongly about the Mobile Device Access component,” says Farr. “In fact, we were willing to delay going LIVE with the Zebra devices if it meant waiting to get single sign-on working. That’s how crucial it is to a successful go-LIVE.”
