Point-of-care technology is the key to providing patient care and efficient workflows. PC Connection, Inc. has the experts and services to ensure that you have the right devices and technology to provide excellent care.

When it comes to point-of-care technology, one of the biggest challenges healthcare organizations have is getting the right device that performs all the patient care tasks needed while being easy enough to operate for any end user in any role in healthcare, said Gretchen Jakway, PC Connection, Inc.’s mobile point-of-care solution manager in the company’s healthcare segment.

“Oftentimes it can feel like a game of tug of war going back and forth between IT and the clinical staff about what is the right device and making it work in your environment,” said Jakway. “Spending time sifting through the constant flow of requests from the clinical staff on what they would like to see used for a device – from everything involving CPOE to patient data to the ability to view images at the bedside – takes an enormous amount of resources and time.”

PC Connection, Inc.’s Clinical Device Assessment is just the service that you need to shift that burden. The service’s healthcare IT experts have created a methodology to survey and evaluate the devices for key feature sets that are important to both clinicians and IT decision makers. As a result, you have the time to focus on the other needs of the organization and allocate resources to key projects while still receiving the right data and ROI to making purchasing decisions, said Jakway.

Part of PC Connection, Inc.’s assessment service includes an on-site clinical device fair so your clinicians, IT staff and other key stakeholders have the opportunity to evaluate devices, speak to product experts about the different features of each product and use interactive survey tools to capture feedback, said Jakway.

PC Connection, Inc.’s process results in an analysis that determines your organization’s technology product needs while showing why the clinical staff chose that device. This provides you with a tailored approach to your investment based on your budget and timeline, thus allowing you to provide better patient care, increase employee satisfaction and meet the demands for mobile technology.
