Providing our partners with mobile solutions adapted to the healthcare sector is all the more essential as the sector is currently undergoing profound change. In particular, we offer solutions in the following sectors:
🩺 Home Care 👩🏼⚕️ Nursing Care in Hospitals 🧪 Laboratories 🧑🏼⚕️ Pharmacies
What are the criteria for choosing the most suitable mobile solution?
Firstly, hygiene is one of the main points of attention in the healthcare sector, also for the use of mobile terminals. These pass from hand to hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The industry is increasingly demanding that these devices be ISO certified.
A visible and accessible alarm button is then often requested so that the mobile worker can immediately generate an alarm in the event of an emergency.
Finally, it must be possible to limit the user’s access to certain functionalities.
Traceability and features
Data capture is generally the most widely used feature to collect patient data. In this case, a 2D imager and / or an NFC reader are often used.
Our manufacturer partners also offer various software for quick and easy configuration of portable terminals.
Finally, an integrated fingerprint reader allows quick, easy and secure access to the portable terminal.
Connectivity and speed
L’utilisation de terminaux portables est très souvent combinée à l’utilisation de réseaux de communication tels que le WiFi ou le LTE. Le basculement entre les différents réseaux doit également se faire de manière transparente. Cela permet en effet de garantir une continuité dans la qualité des données et/ou de la voix.
Bluetooth is essential for connections with external devices such as geolocation beacons or printers (portable or not).
The speed of a portable terminal is also essential, thanks in particular to the type of chip and the RAM / ROM memory.
The choice of a device equipped with a long-lasting battery (or interchangeable very quickly) will allow the end user to remain available for the duration of his shift.
Robustness and maneuverability
Damage from portable terminal drops can be limited by choosing rugged solutions that meet drop test specifications.
The IP protection index is also a good indicator of the degree of protection against dust and humidity.
Charging a device through a micro USB port poses a high risk of damaging the port, which could lead to a complete motherboard replacement. This is why the use of cradles offers a more robust and faster charging capacity.
Finally, the user of a portable terminal often wishes it to be practical and light. Options such as a handstrap, beltclip or bag with beltclip contribute to this maneuverability.
The period of availability of the solutions offered to the healthcare sector must be at least 3 to 5 years. Beyond the economic and ecological aspect, this also allows you not to have to adapt your software too quickly.
The range of services and contracts must also be comprehensive. This way the end user doesn’t have to worry about anything.
Providing mobile solutions to the healthcare sector is not the only string to our bow. We also support our partners in the supply of ticket printers, wristbands, as well as their consumables.
