Motion C5 Mobile Clinical Assistant Featured by More Than 50 Vendors

February 29. 2008 – Motion Computing’s C5 mobile clinical assistant (MCA) was featured by more than 50 vendors across the show floor at HIMSS 2008, an indication of its popularity since being introduced to the healthcare market a year ago.

The features of the C5 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. Additionally the company says 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 prove that the C5 can positively impact some issues facing healthcare professionals today.

Some recent study 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 1,853 near misses at the point of medication administration
• Decreased transcription error rate from 25 percent to 7 percent due to increased POC documentation

“To this graying, 30-year veteran of the HIT wars, whose education and initial experience with HIT was to evaluate and justify clinical IT based on its value as a productivity enhancer and tool for process and quality improvement, the results of first six of these studies are impressive, indeed,” said Marc Holland, program director of health provider research for Health Industry Insights, as quoted in a recent issue of the Health Insights and Outlooks newsletter. “Based on the results of these field studies, C5-enabled care processes were deemed to be cheaper, quicker, more efficient and led to better outcomes and higher user satisfaction ratings than computers on wheels (COWS).”
