Five Rights: Choosing the Right Mobile Device Management System
You’re making a significant EHR investment to deliver real-time documentation to the point-of-care. In this continuing series, we discuss the fourth of “Five Rights” you should consider in order to reach your EHR goals:
The Right Mobile Device Management System
In today’s modern hospital, busy fleets of EHR workstations are constantly on the move. Managing these devices in a dynamic clinical environment strains the resources of the hospital IT staff. That’s why a mobile workstation management system is critical in making the right decisions to streamline maintenance, manage assets, and reduce procurement costs.
The hospital IT staff is busy being pulled in different directions; they can only respond on an as-needed basis – a cart is broken, a battery is dead, or a workstation won’t reboot. This reactionary approach is inefficient and increases operational expenses. Clinical workflow is interrupted when workstations are sidelined. IT staff loses valuable time when there is no visibility into the health and location of the workstations.
“IT departments are always looking for ways to do more with less,” explains Mitch Laney, Enovate’s Product Manager. “That’s why we developed RHYTHM, the industry’s first cloud-based system to remotely monitor and manage any sized fleet of mobile EHR workstations with real-time visibility.”
