Zebra Technologies Unveils Mobile Handheld Devices for Clinical Mobility Workflow, Patient Care

Zebra Technologies, a provider of solutions and services to enterprises designed to offer real-time visibility into their operations, has announced two new mobile handheld devices built to improve clinical mobility workflow and patient care. The DS8100-HC series scanners and the TC51-HC mobile computer can foster clinical collaboration for employees and increase operational efficiencies, the company reports, while supporting the rights of medication administration to help increase patient safety.

The DS8100-HC imager series, which comes in both corded (DS8108-HC) and cordless (DS8178-HC) versions, features a housing composed of special plastics to help prevent the spread of bacteria and allow for safe wipe-downs with a wide selection of disinfectants used in hospitals. The DS8100-HC series features user-selectable feedback modes to instantly notify health-care workers if a bar code has been properly captured, without disturbing patients. In addition to offering standard LED, vibrate and beeper feedback, the system enables users to adjust beeper volume, frequency and illumination intensity to improve the patient experience.

Both the DS8100-HC series and the TC51-HC mobile computer can capture virtually any bar code in any condition, according to the company. What's more, they can scan problematic bar codes in pharmacies and laboratories, as well as at the point of care, in order to improve productivity and efficiency.

According to the company, health-care providers can utilize the TC51-HC mobile computer to replace multiple devices required to perform such tasks as calling and texting co-workers, receiving calls via PBX, accessing patient records, scanning bar codes and increasing medication administration accuracy. Consolidating these applications into a single device, Zebra explains, allows tasks to be executed with greater ease and proficiency. An ultra-high-resolution, rear-facing camera and a front-facing camera enable health-care professionals using the TC51-HC to provide an account of patient condition and offer remote consultation for quicker service.
