Intel® 2 in 1 devices are enhancing mobile workflows at Resurgens Orthopaedics, Georgia’s largest orthopedics practice. Resurgens conducted a proof of concept (POC) in which physicians and clinical staff modified their workflows to incorporate Allscripts Wand* for TouchWorks* EHR powered by Windows* 8 and running on HP Revolve* 2 in 1 devices with the Intel® Core™ i5 processor.
In this c...ase study, Resurgens leaders say the practice and its patients benefit from the combination of technologies and that it overcomes issues they encountered earlier using an iPad*-based solution. Resurgens CIO Bradley Dick offers best practices for deploying mobile technologies in healthcare, including the recommendation to start by identifying workflow problems and then developing solutions to fit them, rather than picking devices and then looking for ways to use them.
Resurgens physicians and staff found that the Allscripts EHR app in the Intel and Windows 8 environment gives users the flexibility to access all their important applications. Users can operate in notebook or tablet modes, and easily switch between touch and keyboard data entry to suit their workflow requirements and personal preferences.
The resulting mobile workflow saves time and effort for physicians and staff. It also helps Resurgens enhance the patient experience, as clinicians get more face time with patients and can provide them with a higher-quality and more consistent experience. The mobile workflow also lets Resurgens streamline its patient discharge process, relieving a previous bottleneck at the checkout station and enhancing patient privacy.
