In keeping up with the needs of the health care community, Motorola has recently unveiled a fascinating new technology. They are created a push-to-talk mobile device that they say can withstand the drops and spills of a hospital environment. Called the Motorola MC75A0-HC Rugged Healthcare Enterprise Digital Assistant (EDA), it will enable doctors and nurses to enter patient data right at the bedside.Presently, most smartphone connections are difficult to maintain at the bedside. This new device should streamline the patient process, allowing health care workers to have quick and accurate access to patient information, medication requirements, drug libraries, patient vital signs and more. Apparently the unit will also be used to perform blood transfusions, collect lab specimens and order prescriptions.Certainly, this is a new field of technology which enables health care professionals to better perform their tasks and streamline the process of patient care. Other companies are creating similar devices, including the Motion Computing J3500 Tablet PC and the Panasonic Toughbook H1.
