Laptop carts bring critical information to the Point of Care in patient rooms, OR, ICU or ER. Clinicians are faced daily with patient care decisions and need all Electronic Medical Record (EMR) information at their fingertips – in realtime and easy to use.
Laptop computer carts are becoming an essential platform for bringing data to the bedside. Whether you call them COWs (computers on wheels), WOWs (workstations on wheels) or BMSs (bedside medical stations), these versatile laptop carts can help improve work flow efficiency as well as provide safer patient care.
The mobile laptop cart becomes a mobile nurse station. Streamlining work flow, nurses always have access to the electronic medical record and they don't have to wait for a computer to open up at the nurses station. It helps them provide a more consistent level of patient care, because they do not have to disconnect from the patient to go somewhere to use an electronic health record.
It means that the rest of the hospital system that is waiting for patient data, whether it is to approve a discharge, or to approve the start of a procedure ... the whole system works much more efficiently because you do nott have anybody waiting for the latest information on that patient.
