At ProviNET Solutions we are constantly vetting the marketplace to help ensure our best of breed recommendations continue to be of value to our clients. For that, we take pride in the solutions we routinely endorse. Specifically, we understand how important it is for our healthcare clients in choosing the correct Point of Care devices knowing how incredibly impactful it can be to an organization if they don’t have the right solution in place. This is why for the last 5 years, ProviNET Solutions has partnered with Pioneer Solution as they offer a number of medical grade touchscreen options that are an ideal fit for healthcare organizations.

The medical grade touchscreen computers manufactured by Pioneer are specifically designed for healthcare environments, with an embedded privacy filter and antimicrobial features which make their offering stand above the rest. These state-of-the-art touchscreen computers include a rugged design which can withstand the harsh and demanding healthcare environments, and are even built to protect against liquid sprays and can withstand millions of touches. Their enclosure contains an anti-microbial additive to prevent the growth and spread of surface micro-organisms and bacteria.  And in order to help comply with rigorous HIPAA requirements, the devices are also equipped to protect patients’ personal and confiden­tial information with its innovative design allowing a privacy screen filter to be embedded internally.  Due to this design, only the user directly in front of the screen may see the information, concealing views from other angles. As an added benefit, this embedded privacy filter also eliminates the need to regularly clean the display from fingerprints and helps prevent against scratches.

The Pioneer platform provides versatility as well; primarily when considering initiatives to help ensure the caregivers are able to maintain mobility throughout their area of responsibility for their entire shift. The freedom to move about the facility with a mobile all-in-one device with a hot-swappable battery has been a game changer to the medication administration workflow, whereas in the past a laptop was the most likely solution, often with carts left plugged into the wall.

Another enormous advantage to consider with the Pioneer platform is that the devices have a longer life cycle than most commercially available or consumer grade all-in-ones. This allows larger enterprises to have phased implementations installing the same device model over the span of several years. Not only does this method help reduce deployment and support overhead, but it helps minimize the total cost of ownership of the equipment as well. Because these devices are purpose-built with a healthcare setting in mind, this helps mitigate the customers’ concern of having to purchase replacement hardware that isn’t intended for this specific purpose every 1-2 years.

Choosing the right point of care device may seem like a difficult and daunting task, but there are resources available to assist you! Pioneer and ProviNET have teamed up to create a free resource kit that will outline a series of items to consider to ensure you are able to establish well-defined goals and outcomes throughout this exercise. Our hope is that this kit will help you and your organization understand the various components, but then take the correct steps in making the right decisions for your organization.
