New PDA Provides Patient View on the Go

May 6, 2008 - Philips' IntelliVue mobile viewer application gives physicians access to patient information from anywhere within the hospital by providing patient data and alerts through a personal digital assistant (PDA) device.

Introduced at the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) National Teaching Institute (NTI) and Critical Care Exposition in Chicago, the IntelliVue mobile viewer delivers patient information that is displayed in an reportedly easier-to-read format, including large numeric view, six waveforms and up to 10 seconds of data can be displayed. In addition, clinicians can capture and store screen shots for future use.

The mobile viewer application can be downloaded onto an existing PDA and receives patient data wirelessly via a customer supplied 802.11 infrastructure for convenience. Philips' mobile viewer application is supported via Windows Mobile 5.0 or Window Mobile 6.0 Classic and Professional.
