Transform the Way Care is Administered with Zebra Workstation Connect

Combine Mobile & Desktop Clinician Care with Zebra Workstation Connect

Healthcare workers handle a variety of tasks that require additional screen space and capabilities that their mobile handheld devices cannot accommodate. With Zebra Workstation Connect, clinicians can create dynamic on-demand workstations by seamlessly docking their Zebra mobile healthcare device. Once docked, the device can connect with monitors, keyboards, headsets, and other peripherals that make work easier and less cumbersome. In turn, the number of devices and platforms needed for effective patient care can be simplified by combining mobile technology with desktop workstations – improving the delivery of care and lowering hospital IT costs.

Benefits of Deploying Zebra Workstation Connect

With Workstation Connect, nurses get access to all the mobile scanning and data capture capabilities required at the patient’s bedside with the flexibility of switching to desktop mode to update EHRs, view screenings, complete forms, and more.

More Efficient Delivery of Care

Combining mobile healthcare handhelds with Workstation Connect eliminates the need to juggle different technologies and platforms. By executing all tasks from one central device, care can be administered more effectively and efficiently. Nurses and clinicians can switch between mobile and desktop modes to accomplish key tasks like:

  • Accessing & updating EHRs
  • Scanning patient barcodes and medications
  • Completing forms
  • Viewing charts and images
  • Capturing images for proof of condition

Reduced Operating Costs

Using both mobile devices and workstation computers compounds IT costs and management. In fact, hospitals with over 250 beds can spend almost $30 million annually on IT. With a simplified technology stack, healthcare IT teams not only save on initial expenses but also time, energy, and resources spent on managing IT.

Create a Secure & Fully-Connected Workstation

The Zebra Connect Cradles are available for a large selection of Zebra mobile computers and tablets. All Connect Cradles feature HDMI, Ethernet, USB-A ports, and a 3.5mm headset jack. Once your Zebra device is docked in the cradle, users can interact with it as if it were a desktop computer with a keyboard, mouse, monitor, and printer.

Integration with Zebra’s Mobility DNA means that administrators can configure which peripherals can connect to the device. Define accessories by manufacturer, model, serial number, or more, locking workstations from interacting with untrusted or unapproved accessories and peripherals.
