Zebra Technologies Corporation is one of the leading digital solution providers enabling businesses to intelligently connect data, assets, and people.
The company’s Android-based HC20 and HC50 devices are designed specifically to meet the needs of healthcare workers with features to improve operational efficiency for clinical and non-clinical staff.
With Zebra’s new HC20, healthcare practitioners are gaining an optimal, purpose-built yet affordable solution to keep their healthcare staff connected and properly equipped.
On the other hand, the new HC50 extends HC20 capabilities with battery hot-swap capability as well as a front-facing camera and a larger memory footprint.
The newly launched HC20 and HC50 feature a large 6-inch high-definition (FHD+) edge-to-edge display and improved connectivity with Wi-Fi 6/6E support.
Both devices are also outfitted with a dedicated emergency alert button and a healthcare-grade outer shell that withstands over 30 disinfectant cleansers used by hospitals.
In his address, Chris Sullivan, Global Healthcare Strategy and Practice Lead, Zebra Technologies Corporation, said: “Our latest HC20 and HC50 handheld mobile computers equip healthcare providers with innovative technology solutions to improve workflow efficiency at the point-of-care to meet clinicians’ complex and evolving needs.”
The new series of rugged handheld mobile computers for healthcare professionals also include a patient-friendly scanner, device tracking, and field-replaceable batteries.
Additionally, the devices have advanced audio communications capabilities, including HD voice, voice over IP (VoIP), push-to-talk, and private branch exchange (PBX) calling, which are part of Zebra’s Workcloud Communications suite.
Both devices convert into a full workstation with Zebra’s Workstation Connect and a Connect Cradle, enabling healthcare workers to use a desktop-sized screen, mouse, keyboard, and other peripherals on the move.
Another key feature of HC20 and HC50 has to be Zebra’s Workcloud Communications suite called Profile Manager.
This Profile Manager has the potential to enhance patient-centric care by providing secure authentication, automation of tasks, and the ability to identify and manage user roles.
The Profile Manager has its own set of unique characteristics to promote a more efficient and effective healthcare ecosystem where data and services are readily available.
Moreover, the HC20 and HC50 devices utilize Zebra Mobility DNA software tools to improve communications as well as optimize workflows and usability for caregivers.
Both devices come with Zebra Mobility Total Benefits of Ownership, providing a longer lifecycle, increased security and IT management, and lower cost of ownership.
Commenting on the product launches, Chris Sullivan outlined: “Ensuring the right patient receives the right care, at the right time, is critical. By providing patient health information in real-time to clinicians directly at the point of care, the quality of patient care is elevated.”
Zebra’s Android-based HC20 and HC50 have purpose-built features designed to accommodate the needs of health professionals, in particular, the handheld mobile computers are significantly light and small in size.
With the launch of these new devices, Zebra Technologies Corporation has expanded its extensive portfolio of healthcare solutions with the aim of elevating the quality of care and the patient experience.
