TabletKiosk Introduces the MediSlate MSC i1040XT
      #32806 - 03/04/09 06:08 PM

TabletKiosk today announced the new MediSlate MCA i1040XT, a mobile clinical assistant (MCA) featuring a sunlight readable 10.4 inch resistive touch screen. More detailed info:

The MCA reference architecture developed by Intel and based upon significant ethnographic research, workflow studies and conversations with healthcare professionals worldwide; was created specifically for the rigors, needs and workflow of the clinical environment? whether that is a ward, clinic or emergency room.

Built for today?s demanding healthcare environments, MediSlate MCAs were designed to improve workflow efficiencies, ease clinician workloads, and help reduce medication and administrative errors by utilizing an array of data and image capturing technologies. Traditionally, healthcare professionals had to rely on paper charts, stationary desktop PCs and equipment wheeled around on bulky carts to help them complete common activities such as taking medical histories, monitoring medications, reviewing test results and x-rays, and patient charting. Using a MediSlate MCA in tandem with their existing EMR systems, clinicians and administrators are able to perform all of these same tasks easily and directly at the point-of-care, allowing them to spend more of their time interacting with patients.

The MediSlate MCA i1040XT, powered by Intel Centrino Mobile Technology, is a versatile and full featured computing device that is housed in a specially sealed, semi-rugged, smooth surface case that is drop-resistant and spill-proof enabling it to be easily wiped clean and disinfected to help reduce the spread of germs. Also, with its integrated 2D/1D barcode scanner, 2.0 megapixel web-enabled video camera, biometric fingerprint reader and a 13.56MHz RFID reader built into its ergonomic handle, the MediSlate MCA i1040XT is a mobile, easy to carry, point-of-care device that clinicians can use to enter data, verify patient identification, verify themselves as authorized care givers, and scan pre-printed labels from patient ID bracelets, medication packaging and blood vials.

For maximum durability and usability, the MediSlate MCA i1040XT is available with a shock mounted 80GB, 1.8? SATA HDD (standard) or 1.8? 32GB Solid State Drive (special order) and is powered by an Intel Core 2 Solo ULV processor. Configured standard with 2.0GB DDR2 SDRAM, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n (Draft 2.0), integrated Bluetooth and two (2) hot swappable Lithium-Ion batteries (standard), MediSlate MCAs offer uncompromised computing power along with a broad range of essential technological capabilities to keep doctors and nurses current and connected wherever their work takes them.
