ACT Health wants to up its COW quotient

ACT Health has gone to tender for almost 250 new computer on wheels (COWs) to support electronic access to clinical information systems at the point of care such as electronic medications management, electronic pathology ordering and sample collection, and vital signs monitoring.

ACT Health currently uses a number of COWs along with various carts for vital signs monitors, venepuncture and pathology collection but wants to replace the carts with standardised COWs, including 157 slimline models that provide portable access to clinical systems as well as vital signs monitoring, and 89 stock COWs that can hold sufficient stock for ward round usage.
