Hospital Installs 100 Wireless Mobile Workstations

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (Packard Children’s), perennially ranked as one of the nation’s top hospitals, has deployed 100 wireless mobile clinical workstations from Flo Healthcare. These integrated devices will help the hospital increase patient safety at the point-of-care as it rolls out its electronic health record (EHR) initiative.
A team of project managers from Packard Children’s evaluated carts, and hospital nursing staff spent about a month testing and evaluating units from the final two vendors, including Flo.
Packard Children’s went live with Phase I in September 2005 using 80 Flo 1750 mobile clinical workstations in all units of the children’s hospital. Today the carts number close to 100 and also can be found at the hospital’s ambulatory care center. Phase II, scheduled to go live in September 2007, will include increased online documentation from nursing and support services, integrated medication devices such as vital signs monitoring, and physician order entry (CPOE).
