Motion Computing announced today its new C5 mobile clinical assistant (MCA) at UCSF Medical Center during a joint conference with Intel. The MCA is a new computing category, created by Intel with support from Motion to enable nurses, physicians and other clinicians to do their jobs on the move.
The front view of the Motion C5
The Motion C5, is the industry's first mobile clinical assistant PC. It integrates durable design elements with key data capture technologies to simplify workflows, increase productivity and improve overall quality of care. The design is based on input from thousands of clinicians. The C5 is made to bring reliable, automated patient data management directly to the point of care.
The C5 helps explain issues to patients.
The C5 scans patients wrist band barcodes.
The C5 has a digital camera for documenting injuries.
Obviously the C5 is targeted toward the healthcare field, but I could see it working in many other fields as well, due to some of its features and lightweight portable design.
Features of the Motion C5:
The C5 is available now with prices starting at $2,199. I would think that hospitals could get some kind of discount with bulk orders, but I am not positive. There is also many nice accessories that go along with the C5 like the docking station, Motion's Medical Pak Software and the additional battery.
