Inca Local Hospital Mobilizes High-Quality Care
The Local Hospital at Inca, on the island of Mallorca, believes itself to be one of the best examples of a paperless hospital in Spain. Wanting to maintain its leading position in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT), the hospital is pioneering the introduction of mobile platforms for use by healthcare professionals.
Doctors and nurses at Inca Local Hospital needed mobile access to core IT systems and applications, recognizing the potential value of being able to find and input information at any time, through devices that they can carry with them. The hospital also believed this sort of on-the-move access would enhance the quality of care it could deliver to patients, so it decided to evaluate the mobile computing options available.
One area in which the hospital tested the Fujitsu Q207* 2 in 1 devices, powered by Intel® Core™ i5 processors, was coordinating transplants. It assessed how staff could use the devices to receive alerts generated automatically when an organ becomes available, and which need a rapid response. The hospital also tried the devices in nursing units and during doctors’ medical visits.
