SAN JOSE, Calif., August 15, 2016 – DT Research, the leading designer and manufacturer of purpose-built computing solutions for vertical markets, today announced the DT590 series of All-in-One Medical-Cart Computers, integrating small and inexpensive hot-swappable batteries to facilitate mobility for healthcare applications. The unique design of the DT Research Medical-Cart Computers addresses long-standing challenges with Computers on Wheels (COWs) and Workstations on Wheels (WOWs) by providing a cordless, lightweight, and anti-microbial computer system that operates continuously with batteries that can be dynamically changed. The DT590 series is the next generation of medical computing solutions, making data access efficient, optimizing staff workflow, and minimizing the total cost of ownership.
"Doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals at hospitals, medical clinics, laboratories and retirement communities have been plagued by significant computer design deficiencies while trying to enter and access patient data at the point-of-care, which has been a gating factor for many care facilities to fully embrace Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems," said Daw Tsai Sc.D., president of DT Research. "We studied the issues with COWs and WOWs – all were related to unreliable, heavy, and expensive power supplies. Our focus for the DT590 series was to address the power supply issues, while also improving upon key medical computer functionality."

The DT590 series features a vivid 19", 22", or 24" display with a high performance Intel® 5th Generation Core™ i7, i3, or Celeron processor in a compact, mountable package. It boasts a 3-bay hot-swappable battery system for zero downtime work environments to increase mobility over traditional workstations and decrease costs and maintenance associated with COWs. Designed to sustain at least one working shift without adding charged batteries, DT Research Medical-Cart Computers use inexpensive Lithium-ion batteries to combine for 250W capacity for up to 16 hours of runtime. With battery power and wireless connectivity, this computing solution is ideal for health professionals to manage patient information, dispense medication and work collaboratively.
"Hospital Products Australia (HPA) has supplied the DT Research Medical-Cart Computers to a variety of healthcare facilities in Australia and the demand for the carts has been extraordinary," said Shawn Wigham, Managing Director of Hospital Products Australia. "Large healthcare facilities such as Royal North Shore, Bankstown and Gosford Hospitals have selected the DT Research Medical-Cart Computers as their preferred digital patient care solution. The computers offer clinicians a flexible workflow, enabling direct entry of patient care data into the eMR. The mobile solution eliminates the need for desk-based computers. Hospitals chose the DT Research solution for its unique mobility, durability and highly responsive touch screen design that streamlines patient care without compromising allocated hospital budgets."
