Mobile Clinical Assistant Transforming Patient Care Delivery, Studies Say

February 25, 2008 - The C5 mobile clinical assistant (MCA) from Motion Computing is reducing medication errors, enhancing compliance with disinfection control protocols and providing immediate access to patient data, according to studies.
More than 50 vendors at HIMSS 2008 in Orlando, FL are featuring the device.
The features of the C5 reportedly help caregivers improve the delivery of patient care. Clinicians can use the integrated bar-code reader and RFID scanner to positively identify patients and manage medication administration, while the durable, sealed design enables simple cleaning and disinfection. Results from a series of usability studies conducted by Motion, Intel, hospital clients and leading software providers suggest that the C5 can positively impact some issues facing healthcare professionals today. Some recent results include:
- 42 percent improvement in point of care (POC) documentation
- 80 percent reduction in data that needed manual transcription, reducing the potential for human error
- Identification of 15 of 1853 “near misses” at the point of medication administration
- Decreased transcription error rate from 25 percent to seven percent due to increased POC documentation
