Working with Emerson to Create “Smart” Mobile Workstations for Hospitals
InterMetro, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and a leading manufacturer and supplier of storage and transport products for the food service, commercial and healthcare industries, is working with AT&T* to create “smart” mobile workstations that allow caregivers to access treatment information and update patient medical records at patients’ bedsides.
The two companies will integrate AT&T’s machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions with the Metro® AccessPoint wirelessly connected mobile workstations, allowing InterMetro to proactively monitor, troubleshoot and share vital performance data about the devices. The connected mobile workstations send updates and alerts when systems are in need of service and are enabled to receive software updates from InterMetro remotely when needed.
The Metro® AccessPoint Rx mobile medical workstation is being finalized to optimize run time, improve patient care, reduce costs and improve efficiency.
