11 Reasons why TC51-HC is the Answer to Better Connections & Better Care

1. One touch access to the most used features.

Seconds can mean the difference between life and death in a hospital.  So, that’s exactly why the TC51-HC offers two flexible options to give users near-instant access to needed features or applications. There’s a programmable button on the back of the device or Active Edge Touch Zones, dedicated keys on either side of the display that users can create and change on the fly.  As a result, with the press of a finger, users can access the Electronic Medical Records application, text messaging, the scanner and the camera, or send a Code Blue alert to the right personnel.

2. The most sanitizable housing design.

Zebra designed the TC51-HC specifically for hospital environments.  All screw holes are covered, and the number of crevices and seams were minimized to eliminate places where germs could hide.  Advanced, medical-grade plastics provide the ability to withstand constant exposure to the widest selection of disinfectants in the industry.

3. First-time, every-time fast and flawless scanning.

One of Zebra’s most advanced scan engines and Zebra’s PRZM Intelligent Imaging work together to deliver lightning fast barcode capture. Hospital staff can scan 1D and 2D barcodes with the TC51-HC, regardless of whether they’re damaged, dirty, or poorly printed.

4. The most rugged device in its class.

The IP65-sealed TC51 is the only mobile computer in its class that can handle 4ft drops over the entire operating temperature range.  Also, the Corning Gorilla Glass touch panel and imager window bring maximum scratch protection.  And the unibody design provides extra impact protection for the sensitive electronics.

5.  Superior PBX functionality.

With optional Workforce Connect Voice, the TC51-HC mobile computer doubles as a cordless PBX handset. This will reduce costs and eliminate the need to carry and manage more than one device.

6. Best battery and power management in its class.

The best-in-class PowerPrecision+ battery delivers up to 14 hours of battery life.  And, with Warm Swap mode, users can change the battery without powering down the device or closing open applications.

7. Maximum display size.

The 5-inch display is the largest in class, providing workers with more space to view critical patient data.  Even when the screen is wet, users can use a finger or gloved finger to interact with applications.

8. PTT right out of the box.

Better voice connections mean better collaboration which leads to better outcomes. Workforce Connect PTT Express comes pre-installed and pre-licensed, enabling PTT right out of the box, inside the four walls.

9. Most powerful computing platform.

The TC51-HC offers more memory and up to 2-8 times the data storage capacity offered by other healthcare mobile computers. In addition, the 1.8 GHz hexacore 64-bit processor runs apps up to five times faster and consumes 15% less power.

10. Loadable dictionary.

With the TC51-HC, healthcare customers can easily create, deploy, and update a custom dictionary of healthcare words and phrases.

11. CartScan for improved workflow versatility.

With Zebra’s CartScan application, the TC51-HC becomes an extension of the Workstation on Wheels, allowing nurses to scan and enter barcodes at the patient bedside. This is ideal for times when the patient’s room is crowded, and it’s difficult to maneuver the Workstation on Wheels to the patient bedside.

Still not convinced the TC51-HC will help provide better communication and ultimately better care?
