“GWT put together a great solution for us. In particular the PrimeMini 4 inside the cart was ideal in many ways. They even worked with Prime Computer to develop and deliver an external switch to make the users life easier. Our users can complete their tasks quicker, giving more time to patient care. We will look at multiple ways of using this Medical Cart solution and also for the Prime Minis from Prime Computer.”
Aliasgar Bohari, Director IT at Zulekha Healthcare Group
Improved efficency which makes the daily task more easy
To be able to give the best possible care to patients, the nursing team needs to have IT systems in the wards. These should be mobile so the doctors and nurses can record patient interactions, medicines taken, procedures performed and maintain all patient records. The list of requirements was therefore punctilious: Mobile, but not too heavy so nurses can move it as required; Have wifi connectivity – so it works anywhere; Power on the Cart – so it doesn’t need to worry about finding a power socket, booting PC; Stable, so no risk of toppling over; Medical grade – external components need to be of medical grade; PC – preferably fanless and fast; PC – Reliable and low/no maintenance; PC – Low power so can run for many hours on the cart.
The PrimeMini was particularly important. Desktops are too heavy and consume too much power. They also have fans which can spray dirt, bacteria etc. Also the computer needed to be fast and powerful enough so users are not waiting. By selecting the PrimeMini 4 from Prime Computer the hospital received a PC which weighed 1.4kg only. This is fanless and silent, so does not disturb the air or the patients.Working with Gulf & World Traders LLC (GWT), Zulekha tested a medical cart from Lund Industries USA, this was combined with a fanless Prime Mini from Prime Computer, screen from Barco Belgium and medical grade keyboard and mouse from SterileFlat.
