Microsoft previously announced that Seattle Children’s Hospital have committed to purchasing and deploying Surface Pro 3 inside their organization. Apart from it, Avanade, BMW Group, The Coca-Cola Company and Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy have already committed to purchasing and deploying Surface Pro 3. Surface Pro 3 allows these organizations the complete laptop experience with the power to run all the Windows software they need, including the full Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Creative Cloud. Today, Microsoft announced that UPMC has chosen to deploy 2000 Surface Pro 3 devices for use with their innovative Convergence application to give their physicians quick access to the most important information they need about every patient they see. Microsoft touts that health care customers are loving Surface Pro 3 over others.
Like its predecessor, Surface Pro 3 was designed to be a Clinical Grade device–designed from the ground up to ensure maximum performance and usability for healthcare workers. From powerful Intel CoreTM processors to enterprise level data security to the ability be sanitized between patient encounters, clinical grade devices promise the performance, reliability, and security that are required to help caregivers be as productive as they can be while ensuring the highest quality of patient care. Before deploying tablets in your organization, it’s important to make sure the devices you’re considering are clinical grade.
They are choosing Surface Pro 3 because of its following characteristics,
- The new, larger 12.1” display delivers more screen real estate for clinicians to access the data-intensive interfaces found in many full electronic medical records (EMR) software packages—versus forcing them to use stripped-down “apps”.
- The improved multi-position Kickstand provides the perfect angle for pen input, without interfering with patient interaction.
- The lighter and thinner Surface Pro 3 allows for greater mobility for clinicians as they make their rounds in the facility or travel between locations—and eliminate valuable time otherwise spent logging in and out of several stationary devices throughout the day.
- The new Surface Pro 3 Pen facilitates enhanced clinical note taking, while improving the experience accessing busy EMR application interfaces on a mobile device.
- Surface Pro 3’s increased battery life means that healthcare providers never have to leave their patients to tend to their device.
- The new range of Intel CoreTM processor options on Surface Pro 3 are designed to support all types of healthcare workers—from the limited needs of part-time caregivers to the most graphically-intensive PACS users.
