Spanish hospital trials new mobile clinical assistant solution

Orion Health : 29 February, 2008  (New Product)
Clinicians at Hospital Universitario Son Dureta in Palma de Mallorca, Spain is trialling a rapid access to patient information such as demographics and clinical results via RFID wristbands, using scanner technology integrated by Orion Health into mobile clinical assistant (MCA) PCs.
Developed in conjunction with Intel and Oracle, the deployment of Orion Health's clinical software onto the Motion C5 MCA will enable patient data to be available at the point of decision regardless of whether the patient is in a bed, on a stretcher, or being moved in a wheelchair. The healthcare professional will be able to validate the data by sharing it directly with the patient.

“Hospital Son Dureta has made enormous progress in supporting clinicians with information technology in the past couple of years,” said Joan Marques, chief information officer at Hospital Son Dureta. “The next logical step is to make these information tools mobile so clinicians can access patient data wherever they happen to be in the hospital. We are excited about the potential of mobile devices such as Intel's MCA to improve clinical practice and deliver safer care to patients.”

Orion Health and Oracle technologies are already implemented at Son Dureta Hospital , bringing together clinical data from multiple systems across the facility. The Oracle-Orion Health solution comprises a clinical web portal, the Oracle Health Transaction Base (HTB) as a central repository for clinical data, and an electronic whiteboard for the accident and emergency department. These systems were implemented in 2006 in partnership with Fujitsu Services.
