Enovate Medical Clinical Device Assessment

What Is a Clinical Device Assessment?

If you’re in the market for clinical workstations, you might find that you don’t know how to start the purchasing process. All workstations are different, so how do you know which to buy? How do you identify the appropriate workstation for each clinical specialty? How does the clinical workflow impact your choice of workstation?

Enovate Medical has a solution for your dilemma – a Clinical Device Assessment. A Clinical Device Assessment offers a department-specific workflow analysis of workstation needs, supporting informed decision making. You must diagnose before you prescribe, and one workstation configuration does not fit all.

Overcoming Workflow Challenges with a Clinical Device Assessment

EHR workflow

With a CDA, make an informed decision prior to deployment.

A clinical workflow has many variables. The clinical specialty, the medication distribution model, and the room and floor layout all create slightly different workflow requirements. Different workflows often require multiple workstations: fixed and mobile workstations featuring numerous configurations within each.

The Enovate Medical team has many years of experience working with hundreds of hospitals across the U.S. to match workstations with workflows. We understand that documenting patient information in a modern hospital environment can be a challenge, but is a very important task. Your nurses and other clinical staff have many responsibilities, and documentation should be the easiest part of their patient care process.

Do these issues sound familiar?

  • Difficulty in maneuvering mobile workstations
  • Trouble getting to wall-mounted devices
  • The inability to get accessible power outlets in a crowded room
  • Delayed entry of patient data disrupting continuity of care

If that sounds like what you are going through, there’s nothing more frustrating than technology getting in the way of quality patient care. With a Clinical Device Assessment, Enovate will help you optimize your workflow with the right workstations. Your staff can spend more time with patients and less time on managing devices, leading to better patient care.

What Is a Clinical Device Assessment?

EHR efficiency

More efficient clinical workflows allow hospital staff to spend more time with patients.

A clinical device assessment is a department-specific workflow analysis used to identify the best fit for workstation configurations. It drives better outcomes. How? By supporting data-based decision making and helping you get the right equipment for the right challenge. The Clinical Device Assessment empowers hospitals by selecting devices that integrate seamlessly into their existing clinical workflows.

The results of the Clinical Device Assessment will help you identify:

  • Proper workstation to staff ratios
  • Optimum workstation configurations
  • Best practices for usage and maintenance
  • The best choices to maximize return on investment
  • How to optimize workflows to give clinicians more time with their patients and spend less time worrying about workstation issues

How Does It Work?

1. Analyze

First, the Enovate Medical team will analyze each clinical specialty to recommend the ideal workstation style and configuration. Our team will walk through the following questions and others to complete a comprehensive assessment:


  • Is the room better suited for a fixed wall mount or mobile workstation?
  • Are power outlets and data drops available for wall mounts?
  • Will a wall mount allow face-to-face patient engagement?


  • What is the nurse-to-patient ratio?
  • What are the max staff levels per shift?
  • What clinicians, other than nurses, need access?

2. Diagnose

After building a clear understanding of your clinical workflows and an articulation of your needs, Enovate will get to work designing the ideal scenario for your hospital. This work is supported by a team of professionals with ample experience completing CDA’s. Enovate Medical’s goal is to present a solution that supports the best possible outcomes for clinicians, IT teams, and patients, exceeds expectations, and allows us to become your strategic partner, not just another medical cart vendor.

A strong diagnosis (solution) enables:

  • Continuity of care across your facility
  • Increased device availability
  • Efficient delivery of medications
  • More time to focus on the patient

3. Prescribe

Prescribe references the moment when the Clinical Device Assessment is complete and the products and services are agreed upon. At this time, Enovate will deliver a strategic deployment plan. The plan will help to increase nurse and physician adoption rates at the hospital and reduce the burden on IT teams. Enovate Medical is here to ensure you get the greatest return on your investment and a large part of that threshold is related to adoption and usage rates amongst stakeholders.

Why You Shouldn’t Skip the Clinical Device Assessment

No matter where you are in the buying cycle, a clinical device assessment can provide valuable insights into your clinical workflows. Enovate Medical developed the CDA to address an often-overlooked component of buying new workstations – how to determine what medical carts you need and where.
