AT&T, Emerson to develop "smart" mobile workstations for hospitals

AT&T and Emerson have teamed up to develop “smart” mobile workstations that will allow healthcare providers to access treatment information and update patient medical records more easily.

The telecoms giant is working with InterMetro, a subsidiary of manufacturing giant Emerson (St Louis, MO, USA) that specializes in storage and transport products for the food service, commercial and healthcare industries.

The two companies plan to combine AT&T’s (Dallas, TX, USA) M2M services with wirelessly connected mobile workstations developed by InterMetro.

That will allow InterMetro to monitor and share details of vital performance data, with mobile workstations sending updates and alerts when systems are in need of service.

Using the workstations, hospital staff will be able to update records at a patient’s bedside, which should lead to major efficiency gains and cost savings for hospitals using the technology.

InterMetro will also be able to provide software updates remotely, saving time and money.

“We are proud to be working with AT&T to mobilize and improve patient care and caregiver satisfaction with smart workstations,” said Rob Sobie, the vice president of healthcare solutions at Emerson’s InterMetro business. “We expect these smart workstations can also help hospitals streamline workflow and reduce costs by moving vital information to where it is needed, when it is needed in the caregiving process.”
