July 2012 Franklin, MA – JACO, the pioneer of healthcare mobile computer cart design and manufacturing is thrilled to announce that nationally acclaimed (IDN) Integrated Delivery Network, MaineHealth, has selected JACO UltraLite Series Carts as their new (EMR) Electronic Medical Record platform. Maine is home to some of the most progressive health systems in the country with an active pilot program to have the first statewide medical archive system in the nation. Along with the statewide archive system, MaineHealth is also leading the way in comprehensive (EHR) Electronic Health Records adoption. MaineHealth has recently selected Dell Healthcare and JACO, Inc to mobilize their clinical workforce with the most state-of-the-art, durable EMR mobile computer carts in the industry.
With numerous facilities and thousands of healthcare professionals, MaineHealth EHR projects are immense and can be daunting unless managed properly. For the coordination of production, integration and fulfillment of their new mobile cart fleet, MaineHealth selected JACO for their American-Made solutions and time-honored service commitment with 40 years of experience satisfying customers. Selecting energy efficient, thin client PCs and LED monitors from Dell, IT decision makers at MaineHealth realized that they could maximize runtimes for nurses and physicians by keeping the overall wattage draw down as low as possible. By achieving a low wattage IT footprint, MaineHealth was able to utilize JACO’s JPS-250 Lithium Power systems to achieve full-shift runtimes and at the same time maintaining a comfortable, lightweight mobile cart all at an affordable price.
National Product Manager, Gary Dorn explains, “We have rich history here at JACO of going the extra mile for our clients and with MaineHealth we’re doing just that. Deploying over a thousand new mobile carts over the next several months, MaineHealth wanted to focus their efforts on managing their IT infrastructure and training needs of their staff, so we are making the production process and hardware integration and logistics efforts a seamless, factory provided turnkey solution. Our vertically integrated service offering at JACO allow us to provide system integration and PC imaging services, so we can furnish our customers with immediately deployable network-ready devices. JACO is a world-class (ODM) Original Design Manufacturer so design, production, system integration, fulfillment and service are our core competencies. We are proud to be able to fully utilize our talents and work with such an amazing team at MaineHealth.
In addition to JACO’s UltraLite 520 Lithium Powered Mobile Carts, MaineHealth will also deploy UltraLite 200 non-powered carts for specific applications where non-powered carts will prove to be more practical and cost effective. JACO’s UltraLite 200 non-powered carts are by far the industry lightest-weight, most compact non-powered mobile carts in the industry. The entire UltraLite Series product family by JACO is manufactured out of lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum and steel providing caregivers with the most durable EMR solution available. Moreover the smooth, solid powder-coated surface finish offers the ideal barrier to harmful bacteria making for improved infection control conditions.
