Since deployment, the IT department and clinical staff have experienced increased workflow efficiency due to the durability, lightweight and portability of the Toughbook computers. Physicians and nurses can go about their daily duties without having to worry about dropping, bumping or spilling onto their Toughbook laptops. Nurses can access patient records bedside, eliminating the need to go a separate computer station. In turn, patients receive lab results and doctor recommendations immediately and efficiently.
