Pioneer Solution: Simplifying Clinical Documentation and Workflow with Smart Tech

In healthcare facilities, clinical documentation at the point of care takes place around the clock. That is a given. Unfortunately, it often involves nurses using mass-produced consumer-grade electronics and struggling with limited life batteries like those found on laptops, consumer tablets, and many computers on wheels. These types of battery devices were never designed for the continuous heavy-duty mobile utilization that is required by a healthcare institution. Instead, they were intended for portability and convenience within the limited use cycles of light-duty business processes. For short-staffed caregivers working long and busy shifts, relying on these type of devices means frequently interrupted workflows due to constant recharging or finding an outlet to plug in from a fixed hallway location away from the patient. In either case, it means more frustration and potentially less time caring for patients at the bedside.

Thankfully these challenges do not have to be a given. A better alternative came in the form of Pioneer whose leading-edge medical-grade mobile computing solutions addressed all the pressing challenges in the clinical documentation workflow.

With nearly three decades of experience, Pioneer Solution specializes in designing and building mobile computing technology specifically for use at the point of care, including handheld, wall-mounted, and cart-mounted solutions. These devices are purpose built and developed with a thorough understanding of clinical workflows.

At its core is Pioneer’s “No More Cords” initiative, which features intelligently designed technology that is able to run 24x7 through an advanced hot-swappable battery system called RxChange™. “The batteries are designed to be easily swapped mid-use without any interruption to the power, thus allowing fully continuous sessions round the clock.Our customers never have to plug in their devices, and therefore, can move freely to focus on the patient without compromise,” says Ian Gelenter, senior vice president of Pioneer Solution.

“Another concern for providers using consumer-grade electronics is Infection Control,” says Gelenter. “Consumer devices have open crevices and textile plastics. Liquids can easily damage open port computers while bleach-based cleaners quickly deteriorate surfaces.
The bottom line is: these devices are making infection control and cleaning practices difficult to maintain, harder to clean, and less likely to get cleaned after every patient.”

To address the infection control concern, Pioneer has incorporated anti-microbial plastic standard on all their medical-grade computers. A specially designed sealed housing with no exposed ports protects the devices from liquid spills and splashes while enabling simple, easy and quick cleaning between uses without concern for damage or time consumption.

At its heart, Pioneer is also a company that truly understands clinical workflows and mobile computing in the healthcare environment. In addition to designing and manufacturing best-of-breed mobile devices, Pioneer leads the industry in providing valuable resources to assist with mobile device strategy, planning, and implementation. With the goal to help providers ensure Predictably Successful Outcomes©, Pioneer developed a comprehensive customer enrichment platform called AIM for Outcomes™ that includes available on-site mobile device assessments, project planning checklists, educational primers, SME webinars, and complimentary demo equipment. The AIM for Outcomes™ program is based on the theory that all three pillars of the EMR implementation: application, infrastructure and mobility must be considered and addressed equally to ensure predictably successful clinical documentation outcomes.
