Zebra partners with GE Healthcare

NEW DELHI:  Zebra Technologies Corporation is introducing two new purpose-built mobile handheld devices that will improve clinical mobility workflows and patient care.

The DS8100-HC series scanners and the durable TC51-HC mobile computer can foster clinical collaboration for staffers and drive better operational efficiencies, while also supporting the five rights of medication administration to help increase patient safety. The new products expand Zebra’s portfolio of healthcare solutions.

In addition, Zebra recently partnered with GE Healthcare to bring Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless asset tracking technology to hospitals. GE Healthcare’s Encompass is a cost-effective real-time location systems (RTLS) solution that helps hospitals manage mobile asset inventory, reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and achieve better capital allocation.

“We have seen digital healthcare increasingly take over the traditional ways of delivering patient care in Asia Pacific. Hospitals are adopting enterprise-grade mobile devices like the TC51-HC mobile computer and DS8100-HC series scanners to record, cross-check, and analyze patient data. This has delivered tangible productivity and efficiency gains, reduced human errors, and significantly enhanced the patient experience. We foresee administrative work to be increasingly done using mobile devices, freeing up doctors and nurses for more value-added tasks – ultimately enhancing patient care,” SAID Wayne Harper, Senior Technical Director, Zebra Technologies Asia Pacific.

“Zebra is pleased to collaborate with GE Healthcare as we see transformative value from this innovative, practical, and easy-to-implement real-time tracking solution. With Enterprise Asset Intelligence built by real-time visibility, clinicians now have reduced operational distractions and a greater ability to maximize their focus on patient care. This is a good thing for all of us and contributes to a higher-quality, lower-cost patient care environment,” SAID Chris Sullivan, Global Healthcare Practice Lead, Zebra Technologies.
