As facilities bring Electronic Patient Records into the Operating Room, patient monitoring and IT hardware is being added to your Anaesthesia Workstations. The resulting configuration must be safe (EN60601-1), and workflow friendly.
Recent ePMA feedback.
The workstations on wheels have reduced the time of the medication rounds alongside ePMA. They mean less medication is carried, resulting in a more organised drugs trolley and reduced waste. They provide a mobile workstation for nurses, ensuring the nurse can remain close to the patient, whilst completing notes. They have been the most successful device for internet connection whilst completing drug rounds. They maintain the safety of drugs without the need to carry keys, due to the keypad lock.

Reliable access to mobile technology played a significant contributory factor to successful implementation, for example, to enable medical staff to prescribe at the bedside. For drug administration rounds we required a solution with a small footprint. There was also a requirement for the mobile technology to provide secure lockable, configurable cupboard space.
We have continued to find Parity Medical helpful and efficient, listening to our needs, and consistently delivering in line with our Project/Implementation Plan. Kevin Rooney, eHealth Project Manager, NHS Dumfries & Galloway.
