Healthcare Computers on Wheels Roll With a Changing Economy
In 2023 and beyond, the healthcare industry is facing the challenge of reordering workflows and productivity to fend off rising costs that will inevitably be transferred to the patient, making healthcare even more unaffordable than it currently is. Within the healthcare delivery sector, a fleet of cutting-edge mobile medical workstations on wheels addresses the four imperatives necessary to thrive in the coming years, as outlined by McKinsey & Company.
McKinsey and Company’s Four Imperatives for Healthcare Delivery
According to the global management consulting firm, healthcare is set to undergo an acceleration in costs of $600 billion by 2027. A report from the last recession (2007-2009), indicated that the most resilient companies meaningfully reordered their sectors to accommodate change with flexibility and foresight. They ultimately outperformed their competitors, with nearly 70% remaining on the top quintile of performers through 2019.
In order to thrive in the coming years, healthcare delivery businesses must do the following:
- Improve healthcare by transforming the delivery of care
- Improve clinical productivity
- Apply new and existing technology
- Simplify administrative procedures
Improving Healthcare by Transforming the Delivery of Care
Medical workstations on wheels empower frontline workers to improve patient satisfaction and outcomes by delivering consistent, informed bedside care. WoW carts equipped with all the tools necessary to access patient information, administer medication, take vitals, and run basic evaluations like EKGs without ever having to move the patient streamline workflows and help keep patients resting easy.
Improving Clinical Productivity
In almost every industry, improving productivity poses the risk of sacrificing quality; and most businesses are careful to evaluate quality control factors before making significant changes. However, it’s especially important in the healthcare industry to ensure this does not happen. No one wants sicker patients for the sake of faster service.
Mobile medical computing workstation with an ergonomic design improve the quality of patient care and productivity by bringing tasks to the point of care. A workstation on wheels eliminates the need to walk back and forth between the patient room and the nurses’, medication, or triage station to view and enter information, reducing worker fatigue and the possibility for costly errors.
Healthcare is generating the world’s largest volume of data, and the biggest players in the healthcare industry are the tech companies. As data and technology evolve, clinicians demand for access to real-time patient data will rise to manage care in the moment.
Workstations on wheels can be designed to power everything from your laptop to your EKG machine. Customized mobile medical carts meet the needs of clinicians and other caregivers with attachments for medical devices, medication drawers and cabinets, and more, supplying them with the technology needed to handle everything that comes up in the patient care cycle.
Simplifying Administrative Procedures
Patients and healthcare workers both benefit from simplified, streamlined administrative procedures. A healthcare computer on wheels makes it possible to complete administrative tasks on the fly, gathering billing and history information in the patient’s room rather than in an impersonal “intake” setting.
Medical Workstations on Wheels: An Investment That Doesn’t Cost More in the Long Run
Some healthcare facilities are hesitant to invest in new equipment or technology because it often means additional costs later for upkeep, rented space, labor to operate, and maintenance supplies.
These additional expenditures are not a concern for healthcare computers on wheels. They simplify and streamline workflow, save space, and cart features provide ergonomic support for clinicians to practice patient-centric care in a number of settings, including telehealth, ambulatory care, radiology, the lab, pharmacy, and more.
Repower Your WoW Cart to Get Even More Out of Your Investment
Even when hospital WoW carts malfunction, it’s usually a result of problems with the batteries. You can mitigate the expense associated with workstation on wheels replacement by investing in medical carts equipped with advanced battery systems built to last.
Mobile computer cart batteries from DTG generally last for at least 7 years and come with an industry-leading 5-year warranty. And when the time comes to replace the batteries on your mobile medical carts, you can repower them for less than half the cost of buying a new workstation.
Roll Into a Thriving Future in Healthcare With Mobile Workstations on Wheels!
The healthcare industry is poised to continue growing, but only the most resilient companies will rise to the top as we face skyrocketing costs in the coming years. Medical workstations on wheels can help address some of the biggest challenges, including quality of healthcare delivery, productivity demands, technology implementation, and simplified administration.
