HP Launches Tech Focused on the Healthcare Industry

HP has launched a latest lineup of healthcare devices specifically designed to address the next generation of patient care. HP’s new healthcare portfolio announced at HIMSS18, is built to address the unique needs of healthcare providers, including enhanced patient safety, smarter workflows and telemedicine solutions, and robust data security features. The new devices include the HP EliteBook 840 G5 Healthcare Edition notebook, the HP EliteOne 800 G4 23.8 Healthcare Edition All-in-One (AiO), and the HP Healthcare Edition HC270cr Clinical Review Display.

“Healthcare is a unique setting and our customers are looking for a very specific set of technology solutions. The HP Healthcare Edition portfolio was designed from the ground up with the needs of clinicians in mind, resulting in a portfolio of industry-first offerings that include the world’s most secure and manageable devices,” said Reid Oakes, senior director of Worldwide Healthcare at HP Inc. “With HP’s new Healthcare Edition notebook, All-in-One, and clinical review display, we are delivering solutions that are safer, smarter and more secure for healthcare. Our latest offerings help providers protect patients and their data, streamline workflows, and facilitate collaboration across the care continuum to deliver effective patient-centered care.”

The healthcare industry is faced with unique challenges when it comes to safety, efficiency, and security. More than 2.5 million cases of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) occur in the European Union and European Economic Area (EU/EEA) each year, illustrating the need for devices designed for repeated and thorough sanitization. Additionally, there is a need to streamline clinical workflows and boost productivity to improve the care delivery experience. On average, clinicians log into workstations and applications 70 times a day, impacting the amount of time spent engaging with patients. Lastly, today’s security threats are complex and require comprehensive defense strategies. In 2016, over 16 million healthcare records were exposed or stolen, with the average cost of data breach per lost or stolen record estimated to be $355 in the U.S.

Drawing on HP’s deep customer insights and its culture of innovation, the HP Healthcare Edition portfolio was thoughtfully designed to deliver safer, smarter, and secured features specific to the healthcare industry. The new healthcare portfolio includes:

  • The HP EliteBook 840 G5 Healthcare Edition Notebook, the world’s first notebook purpose-built for healthcare, includes HP Easy Clean software to facilitate cleaning with germicidal wipes while the device is still on. It is the world’s first ultra-slim notebook for healthcare to integrate RFID and biometrics for single sign-on authentication. It features HP Sure View Gen4 to deter visual hacking and is optimized for an intuitive collaboration experience: HP Audio Boost, HP Noise Cancellation, and IR/RGB camera for optimized audio and video calls. https://escortzone.co.nz
  • The HP EliteOne 800 G4 23.8 Healthcare Edition AiO is the world’s first AiO for healthcare with integrated dual-band RFID and biometrics for single sign-on authentication. It features HP Manageability Integration Kit (MIK) and provides a robust collaboration experience with HP Audio Boost, HP Noise Cancellation to suppress background distractions from noisy environments, and dual-facing pop-camera simplifying patient registration and badging while offering an enhanced privacy option when the camera is not in use.
  • The HP Healthcare Edition HC270cr Clinical Review Display is the world’s first clinical review display to integrate an RFID reader that supports single-sign-on authentication. This 27-inch diagonal, 3.7-megapixel clinical review display is DICOM Part 14-compliant with luminance uniformity, automatic backlight monitoring, auto image rotation, and user calibration for superior image viewing. It is the world’s first clinical review display with USB-C that supplies up to 65w power delivery for connected devices.

The HP Healthcare Edition portfolio is built for easy, repeatable sanitization and tested to meet stringent EN/IEC 60601-1-2:2015 standards, so the devices are safer to use in patient rooms. The healthcare portfolio delivers an optimal, collaborative telemedicine experience with Vidyo Ready and Skype for Business capabilities for superior video-visits and conferencing. Part of HP’s most secure and manageable PC portfolio, the notebook and AiO feature HP Sure Start G4, HP Sure Click, and HP Multi-Factor Authenticate.

The HP EliteBook 840 G5 Healthcare Edition Notebook is expected to be available in EMEA in May. The HP EliteOne 800 G4 23.8 Healthcare Edition All-in-One is expected to be available in EMEA in June. The HP Healthcare Edition HC270cr Clinical Review Display is expected to be available in EMEA in June.
