Toughbook H1 Health Stands Up Against Infection
The largest state government agency in Tasmania, Australia, The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), providers of high-quality and people-focused healthcare, wanted to improve the method clinical pharmacists provided medication recommendations and therapy evaluations to patients at the point of care. The agency wanted an ergonomic and durable device to use in the infectious and non-infectious wards of its network of four acute-care hospitals. DHHS chose the Panasonic Toughbook H1 Health.
Panasonic Toughbook H1 Health’s long-lasting battery life and ability to be repeatedly sanitized with hospital-grade disinfectants, meant it was a perfect mobile solution for an on-the-go and highly-infectious environment. Now, clinical pharmacists are able to bring the device with them and access critical information at the bedside– even in contagious areas of the hospital, eliminating paper-based processes and decreasing the risk of errors while preventing the spread of disease.
