U.K.-based GE Healthcare says it is collaborating with Santa Clara, Calif.-based Intel Corporation and Motion Computing (Austin, Texas) on a mobile computing solution to eliminate the manual collection of patient vital sign data at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center.

According to the company, the solution will provide nurses with a mobile, clinician-centric workflow that incorporates the Motion C5 mobile clinical assistant from Intel into vital sign collection using Centricity Enterprise inpatient electronic medical record (EMR) software and GE Healthcare’s DINAMAP patient monitoring devices.

The solution replaces the use of Computer on Wheels (COWs) to access Centricity Enterprise EMR and is made possible by the creation of a new cable system and Java applet that allows vital sign collection on GE DINAMAP monitors to flow directly into Centricity Enterprise.
