AUSTIN, TX and BUDAPEST, HUNGARY - Motion Computing®, a leading global provider of tablet PCs and supporting mobility solutions, announced today from the World of Health IT (WoHIT) 2011 Conference and Exhibition, that Clinique Esquirol Saint Hilaire (CESH) is the first recipient of its Excellence in Mobile Point of Care Award - Europe. The annual award program recognizes commitment and dedication to deploying mobile point of care solutions that focus on enhancing clinician satisfaction and delivering the highest quality of patient care possible.

“It’s evident through CESH’s integrated approach to deploying a mobile point of care solution that it holds patient care at the highest standard, making them an ideal recipient of Motion’s Mobile Point of Care Award,” said Nigel Owens, Motion VP of worldwide sales and GM of EMEA. “We are pleased to recognize CESH as both an innovative Motion customer, and a recognized leader in delivering high quality care.”

Located in Agen, France, CESH is the first established private health institution in the Aquitaine region, and in 2007 was the first in the country to adopt the C5 MCA. With over 560 employees, 247 rooms and 335 beds for intensive care and rehabilitation, the clinic specializes in the treatment of digestive and urological cancers. In 2005, CESH implemented Ware Système’s Sharegate medical records software to continue to deliver on its long-standing policy of improving the quality and safety.

In order to ensure the long-term effectiveness of the medical records implementation, CESH required a comprehensive mobility solution to optimize all of Sharegate’s functions in real time, at the patients’ bedsides. After testing several solutions, CESH selected the Motion® C5 Mobile Clinical Assistant (MCA) and deployed eighty-five of the tablet PCs across its 15 healthcare departments. Later, impressed with the benefits of the mobile point of care solutions, CESH added the latest C5v MCA to its mobility efforts.

Easy to use and disinfect, the C5 Tablet PCs meet the staff’s mobility requirements perfectly. Patients and caregivers alike benefit from real-time access to information on procedures, treatment and medication, the elimination of duplicate information, the improvement of working conditions and increased security, efficiency and overall patient care.

“From physicians and nurses to caregivers, aides and healthcare managers, our staff agrees that the Sharegate software deployed on the Motion C5 Tablet PCs has significantly improved working conditions and performance as well as enhanced patient care,” said Marc Angotti, CEO, CESH. “This innovative technological integration reflects the clinic’s strong commitment to the modernization of systems and processes in order to enhance the work of caregivers.”

Motion will recognize CESH with the Excellence in Mobile Point of Care Award - Europe on Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 17:00 at the Motion booth #919. All are welcome to attend.
