Home Industry Deals More Toughbooks for Sydney hospital

Sydney Adventist Hospital has added to its mobile fleet with the purchase of 47 Panasonic Toughbook CF-C1 tablet PCs.

The Toughbook CF-C1 tablets will be used by medical professionals at Sydney Adventist Hospital (SAH) to access electronic health records.

"Access to electronic patient information on the Toughbook CF-C1s means that clinicians can now see the important information they need, wherever they may be in the hospital," said CIO Chris Williams.

"Doctors can review information before they see the patient; they can apply clinical decisions, monitor vital signs and alert staff to unexpected results, and all this can be done in their offices, the corridor or diagnostic areas where previously they would have had to have been at the bedside.

"This presents an impressive improvement for both care of the patient, and efficiency and convenience for the medical staff."

The tablets are used to access the hospital's in-house SanCare clinical information system, which is integrated with SAH's patient administration system.

SAH also employs other Toughbook models, including the CF-H1 which is used by the hospital's pharmacists, and the CF-H2 which was designed to endure frequent sanitisation.

A Panasonic spokesperson noted that "The CF-C1 model has been intensively tested with a number of common disinfectants and is safe and approved for use with Sani-Cloth Plus, Alcohol Prep Pads, Cavi Wipes and Total Solutions Disinfectant Wipes."

Advantages of the CF-C1 for this particular application included the keyboard, durability, and battery capacity.
