GE, Motion Computing partner for vital sign collection at UCSF
GE Healthcare IT, Intel Corporation and Motion Computing have joined forces on a mobile computing solution designed to eliminate the manual collection of patient vital sign data at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center.

The goal is to 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 EMR software and GE Healthcare’s DINAMAP patient monitoring devices, GE said.
“GE Healthcare’s collaboration with UCSF, Intel and Motion Computing clearly demonstrates the breadth and depth of solutions that we offer to help customers increase productivity and enhance patient care,” said Laurent Rotival, senior vice president and general manager, GE Healthcare IT.
The solution replaces the use of computers on wheel to access Centricity Enterprise EMRs 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.
